Hi,

create_wrapper was previously abused to invoke the Python/Perl interpretters
directly instead of relying on #! parsing, which is read into a 128 byte buffer
so breaks with deep build directories.

The new create_wrapper is stricter about it's input so this trick doesn't work
anymore.  Luckily there's already a "nativeperl" binary in the sysroot's
/usr/bin, so by adding a "nativepython" alongside it[1] recipes that used
create_wrapper can be changed to munge the #! line to e.g. /usr/bin/env
nativeperl.

(this series obsoletes 3 of the patches that Saul sent earlier involve
create_wrapper)

Ross

[1] The existing nativeperl is a wrapper, the new nativepython is a
symlink. Both seem to work and I can't see a good reason for a wrapper instead
of a relative symlink.
