"make buildbottest" on "AMD64 FreeBSD 9.x 3.x" fails with:
---
Cannot generate ./Include/opcode.h, python not found !
To skip re-generation of ./Include/opcode.h run <make touch> or <make -t ./Include/opcode.h>.
Otherwise, set python in PATH and run configure or run <make PYTHON_FOR_GEN=python>.
*** [./Include/opcode.h] Error code 1

Python has a "make touch" command which uses "hg --config extensions.touch=Tools/hg/hgtouch.py touch -v", but CPython moved to Git.

See issue #23404: "'make touch' does not work with git clones of the source repository".

According to koobs, the buildbot slave has "python2" and "python2.7" commands, but no "python".

See issue #26662 for my previous complain on "python": Python build system should use "python2" or "python3", not "python".

I think this is the same underlying problem as Issue 23404. Either we get “make touch” working without Mercurial, or we use some other mechanism to either disable regeneration by default (my preference), or disable regeneration by explicit request (possible compromise with Nick who liked the automatic regeneration because it saved him remembering other commands: <https://mail-archive.com/search?l=mid&q=CADiSq7d2NV0hbcQB1bYvc9M2qUYZiYC7RsG=fnw7tdWia2YmQg@mail.gmail.com>).
