the problem seems to be in this two files:

src/iojs-v2.0.0/deps/v8/build/toolchain.gypi - line 41
vim src/iojs-v2.0.0/tools/gyp/gyp - line 8

You may want to add the following expressions to the sed invocation
inside the prepare function.

    -e 's_^\( *exec \+\)python\( \+.*\)$_\1python2\2_'\
    -e 's_^\(.*\)python\( \+-c \+.*\)$_\1python2\2_'\
