No, I didn't mean to bump the PKGREVISION in the modules.  I meant that
the modules needed to recognize that the PKGREVISION in python24 needed
to be noticed.  Otherwise the modules will continue to fail to build
with no indication why.

In addition, the modules don't need to be built with the fixed python24
package if the python24 package already built precedes the original
fix.  They will still build with that older version.

It gets messier.  The previous fix didn't bump the PKGREVISION so we
can't point to a particular version and say that it needs to be updated
if you are at that level.  Mind you, I bumped the PKGREVISION 4 days
later for an unrelated fix so the window is only 4 days long.
