For the record, replacing /dev/null with conftest.out in the configure test solves the detection problem (and allows Python to build cleanly). However, there is then a problem in test_systemtap (even when replacing "stap" with "dtrace") since the syntax for scripts doesn't seem compatible.

In any case, the trivial fix for configure:
