While building rsb for arm-rtems I got this problem:

checking for python... /home/peter/miniconda3/bin/python

configure: error: python is missing or unusable

I am running Ubuntu:

python -V
Python 3.6.1 :: Continuum Analytics, Inc.

This comes from an Anaconda installation. If I remove the path entry which causes that I get python 2.7, which is the default Ubuntu 16.04 version. Do I need to install Python 3.6?
