After removing the PYTHON_VERSIONS_ACCEPTED line of their makefiles, I
was able to build sysutils/salt and textproc/py-pdf-parser with python
2.7 with no apparent issues. Those two package akefiles should be
For py-pdf-parser, you can find comments that it will not worked well
in its HOMEPAGE.
It means other packages potentially have same issue
(build&install fine, but not worked as expected).
I think we should only have two versions of python in pkgsrc (2.x and
3.x) but I'll leave 3.1 alone for another day. :)
3.1 is the last version not following PEP 3147.
Before removing it, PLIST handling should be improved
(for example, print-PLIST).
The pkgsrc version is listed at 3.7.
The latest version on that website is 3.9. I downloaded version 3.9 and
I found this at at the top of the program:
__description__ = 'pdf-parser, use it to parse a PDF document'
__author__ = 'Didier Stevens'
__version__ = '0.3.9'
__date__ = '2012/03/11'
__minimum_python_version__ = (2, 5, 1)
__maximum_python_version__ = (3, 1, 2)
It appears to me that the author added 2.7 (and 3.1) support a few
months ago as he implied he would do in the comments. With luck, this
package only needs to be upgraded.
