In trying to compile gnome3 from ports on a Raspberry Pi 2  error messages
with the general form:

 py27-cairo-1.10.0_2 needs Python 2.7 at most, but 3.6 was specified 

come up for numerous dependencies. The failed builds have so far successed when
done in the port directory, using make -DBATCH

The ports tree is at:
 # svnlite info /usr/ports
Path: /usr/ports
Working Copy Root Path: /usr/ports
URL: svn://
Relative URL: ^/head
Repository Root: svn://

Is there an alternative to manually compiling the failing dependencies?

thanks for reading!
