manual: do not generate .pyc files
Python saves a pre-compiled support/scripts/kconfiglib.pyc file side-to-side with the corresponding .py file. This does not work if the Buildroot source tree is read-only (but this is not an error for Python, which keep going OK). But this may cause issues for out-of-tree builds in case the same Buildroot source tree is shared by many builds. Also, 'make clean' currently does not clean this file, and out-of-tree builds can remove it either, at the risk of causing issues for other out-of-tree builds running at the same time. Just tell Python not to generate .pyc files: - call the script via python, don't use the sha-bang - thus, make the script non-executable, and remove the sha-bang Signed-off-by: "Yann E.
