Description (last modified by jhpalmieri)

During Sage installation, I sometimes see an spkg fail to build, for example zn_poly. Then I run

$ ./sage -i spkg/standard/zn_poly-0.9.p10.spkg

If this installs successfully, it still has a return code of 127 (on OS X, at least), because the installation runs sage-location at the end, which hasn't been installed yet. So perhaps sage -i ... should only run sage-location if it already exists. This way something like

$ make || ./sage -i spkg/standard/zn_poly-0.9.p10.spkg && make ptestlong

might work the way I want, and building Sage would require less babysitting.

Here's a first patch. I wouldn't be surprised if there were better ways of doing this.

You should check Python also. I would go for

if [ -x "$SAGE_LOCAL/bin/python" -a -x "$SAGE_LOCAL/bin/sage-location" ]

Just for completeness, you could also use the more "Pythonic"

if [ $status -eq 126 -o $status -eq 127 ]; then
    # Python or sage-location doesn't exist
    exit 0
exit $status

but I wouldn't, since it might use system Python if Sage's Python isn't installed and you would still an error message if it fails to run sage-location.
