First reported in bug 1644845.

Especially after bug 1622963 landed, the system python3 executable as reported by which may not be compatible with the build system (because it might be Python 3.5, for one). You can configure a custom python3 executable by setting the PYTHON3 environment variable, but configure just calls directly into python3 regardless of whatever you might have configured $PYTHON3 to be, so we fix that here.

Also remove an explanatory comment that may have made sense 5 years ago but is no longer relevant.
