Thank you - I patched misc/orca in pkg/45807. It seems to me that all
the buildlinks in that Makefile should just be DEPENDS? (The configure
script tests that the python modules can be imported, not that the
shared libraries can be linked to.) I didn't change what was there though.

Thank you : py-itstool in pkg/45797.

This begs the question: orca is a python program, so should it be py-orca
in pkgsrc parlance? (And what should a gnome 3 version be called? py-orca3?)
