It may not work as expected for the case PYTHON_VERSION_DEFAULT

It is not simple.

For example, gobject-introspection appeared in the depends list,
and it depends on textproc/py-cElementTree, but it should not
try to install py32-cElementTree as a dependency.

I agree this is not straightforward, but it seems that once a package
picks a python version, then any dependencies that are desired should be
required with that same version.  Does this work at all?  Or is the
problem intermediate dependencies via non-python programs, or that gedit
is not a pyXX- prefixed program?

`clean-depends' target (in mk/ is using _DEPNDS_WALK_CMD,
and it will just return list of PKGPATH for dependency (no PKGNAME information).
So all of PKGNAME appeared in the result of `clean-depends' will be generated
with default settings (with python version = PYTHON_VERSION_DEFAULT).
