Disable gdb Python support?

We've been using crosstool-ng for a couple years -- we're currently
using 1.12.  Gdb used to work find for us, but it seems to have broken
when we switched our configuration from 6.8 to 7.2. It appears that
newer versions of gdb are being built with some sort of Python

ldd ./arm-linux-gdb
        linux-gate.so.1 (0xffffe000)
        libncurses.so.5 => /lib/libncurses.so.5 (0xb7743000)
        libz.so.1 => /lib/libz.so.1 (0xb772e000)
        libm.so.6 => /lib/libm.so.6 (0xb7707000)
        libpthread.so.0 => /lib/libpthread.so.0 (0xb76ee000)
        libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0xb76e9000)
        libutil.so.1 => /lib/libutil.so.1 (0xb76e5000)
>>>>    libpython2.6.so.1.0 => /usr/lib/libpython2.6.so.1.0 (0xb758a000)
        libexpat.so.1 => /usr/lib/libexpat.so.1 (0xb7560000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0xb7410000)

That's causing problems for us since not all of our host machines have
the same python versions installed.

We didn't seem to have this problem with gdb 6.8.

Is there any way to disable the Python support when crosstool-ng
builds the host-side gdb?
