Hi Team,

I am trying hard to get nginx unit running with python 3.9.12 as a module.
Given that the binaries are not available for nginx with this module, I am
trying to compile nginx from source.
The problem is that the ./configure python documentation is not clear for

--config=pathname. : what is this config referring to? my python
3.9.12 installation does not have any config file. Where can I find
more information
about this?

--lib-path=directory: is this the path to the python 3.9.12 lib folder?

Any option that I am using is saying
checking for python....not found
./configure: error: no python found
