	The python-based solitare game "pysol" in games/pysol does
	not work with Python 2.2, yet the default build will happily
	build it against python 2.2, producing a package that doesn't

	Build the games/pysol package with python2.2 as the installed
	python on the system.

	The newest version of pysol, 4.81, corrects the problem.  The
	package is easily upgraded with the following patch, which does
	nothing more than change the version which is downloaded.  (The
	distinfo file must also be rebuilt, of course):
