[PATCH 0/1] configure: prefer python's sphinx module

Hi, this is a followup to my patch which attempted to prefer
'sphinx-build' to 'sphinx-build-3' which intended to prefer a VENV
installation of sphinx over Fedora's system installation.

That got confusing, though, so here's something that's simpler and
better: use python to invoke sphinx so we don't have to worry about
python/sphinx version mismatches.

This should essentially always DTRT. In cases where a specific sphinx is
preferred, you would use a virtual environment with sphinx installed and
configure QEMU with e.g. --python /path/to/my/venv/python35
