In our case, we configure GDB with --with-python=/path/to/python,
so it doesn't need to be a location that the configury would find
by itself. In your case, I think what's happening is that you have
/opt/freeware/bin in your PATH, and that allows the GDB configury
to find that python and therefore use it.
