I forgot one item that needs to be changed as well to support renaming of 
the NaN Makefiles. 


create Makefiles for freezing the python stuff. There is a line in there:

makefile = 'Makefile'

in the main() function. That needs to be changed to 'Makefile.NAN', or 
whatever you want to call it. Except for the miriad of libs and include 
variables I had to keep updating when it failed to build at various times 
that as all that needed to be changed to get it to build with the Makefile 
name change. I dont know if autoconf relies on those scripts, or will, for 
it to be able to freeze the modules. If it does, then the scripts may need 
to be changed to read from an environment variable or take another option 
to change the Makefile name.
