For manual package testing wip/pkg_summary-utils may be used
(>=0.47 is strongly recomended).

As bl3.mk is used for handling python-based dependencies, deriving
incompatible python versions from dependencies whould not be a big
problem I think. That is, a list of incompatible pythons should be set
once both for package itself (Makefile) and for dependent packages
(buildlink3.mk). The same for PHP and Apache versions.
