Hi Apache Team & Ports,
Would I be able to persuade you guys to bump or change if you will
USE_PYTHON_BUILD from -2.6 to -2.7 or switch to using USE_PYTHON= instead ?
Comment from bsd.python.mk:
This file contains some variable definitions that are supposed to make
your life easier when dealing with ports related to the Python language.
It's automatically included when USE_PYTHON or PYTHON_VERSION is defined
in the ports' makefile. Define PYTHON_VERSION to override the defaults
that USE_PYTHON would give you. If your port requires only some set of
Python versions, you can define USE_PYTHON as [min]-[max] or min+. (eg.
2.1-2.3, 2.0+ or -2.2)
I have tested apr1 against python27 and have not seen any negative side
effects unless someone can point it out but this port seems to be the
only port holding up my builds due to this define.
It seems correct to me that it should be using:
USE_PYTHON=2.6+ or USE_PYTHON=-2.7
PS: This might also serve as a heads up to the rest of ports that use
python in their builds to also consider that there is a python27 port
now and see how their port reacts to being configured to it.
Too many knobs...
