These patches have now been committed to the tree, notably with
lang/python27 missing in the above list but was included as well. There
have been some proposals already and we can now incrementally improve
the workaround and, more importantly, start fixing individual ports. Please
note that the patch tries to balance between being a general enough fix
to make it easy to get a working system running while not just swiping
the whole issue under the rug and forget about it until the next release
cycle. Make sure to send any fixes upstream to the hack can be removed
from the ports again.
Thanks for all your patience and thanks for all those involved,
especially beat who sent many patches and improvements.
