I only have Python 2.6:
python python2 python2.6 python2.6-config
Python 2.6.6 (r266:84292, Jan 22 2014, 05:06:49)
$ cat /etc/redhat-release
Scientific Linux release 6.5 (Carbon)

The point is, I'm not using a python version natively installed on my
system. I have a python2.7 available as soon as I enter the environment
Python 2.7.3 (default, Aug 2 2013, 20:37:10)
[GCC 4.7.2] on linux2
$ which python2.7
and PYTHON=python2.7 is what I specified at the configure phase
(see my previous email at the bottom).
But this doesn't seem to help.
