building samba 4.9.x with python > 2.6

Hi all,

Whilst I have submitted a bug for Samba 4.9.x not working (compiles without
issue) with Python 2.6 (13882) on CentOS 6.x, I am looking for suggestions
on how to re-configure my current rpm spec file or use a ./configure flag to
force samba to use python35 rather than the default version of python.

Reading the docs / configure scripts etc, nothing is obvious to me where I
can say 'go use python version here' to build / compile against.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Best regards,
