Python has no dependancies. I wonder if something is out of kilter on
your base system? I am not running 5.2.1. I have one system running
5-current and it only had time as a problem of updating these ports.
I am also running perl 5.8.2_5 on that system. There were a number of
things that popped up when I updated perl because all of the p5-*
needed to be updated as well and some of the automakes. Most of these
were covered in /usr/ports/UPDATING.
