Sorry, without Python embedded there's nothing you can do.  Don't bother with the Coot packages distributed by CCP4 - use the binaries on Bill Scott's web page, or install it with Fink.  I think the GUI used to display a warning if the Coot build was incomplete, but I never got this to work properly.  Unfortunately several other people have run into this same problem, so I'll see if I can restore the Python check.
