Please revert this change and re-open the PR, my reasoning is as follows:
- It doesn't solve the problem in the PR. The submitters patch had
problems which caused it not to work properly.
- USE_PYDISTUTILS= is inappropriate and doesn't work in this situation.
Please review bsd.python.mk for what this actually does and when to
- You did not review the tinderbox build log or you would have
noticed that the log indicated: "checking for python... no"
- You clearly did not test the python bindings prior to committing.
- If everything did work, the port would have installed additional files
into the python directories which would also have required plist
Based on these issues and the issue that wxs@ pointed out, I highly
recommend you review your tinderbox settings/practices.
It would also be appreciated to ping the maintainer letting them know
that you plan to make commits to their port. If you don't hear anything
back within a couple days (and it's in a maintainer timeout state), then
I had reviewed this PR and had been investigating a solution. If you
had reached out, I would have been able to share this with you.
