Thanks for the note; I never saw the original PR. Also I am new to
porting and have been recovering from a disk crash, so I've been slow to
produce updates for the PyXML and 4Suite ports.
I'd prefer not to accept this patch as-is. We need to remove the
long-deprecated --with-xslt option that is currently in the Makefile,
and instead add --with-xpath as an option (off by default). I was going
to make it something like this:
# XSLT support in PyXML is deprecated and broken, and may render PyXML
# incompatible with modern versions of 4Suite, so as of PyXML 0.8.4,
# this port will not install the PyXML's xml.xslt package (this is the
# default when PyXML is installed independently, anyway). Currently,
# there is no XSLT support for minidom, but it is possible to convert
# a minidom document to a format used by various XSLT processors.
# PyXML's XPath support (xml.xpath) for minidom is functional, however,
# and may be installed by setting WITH_XPATH=yes.
