Good to know. Thank you.

cd lang/python38 && bmake PREFER_NATIVE=libuuid PREFER_PKGSRC=no

doesn't pick up the system libuuid. I tried both on DragonFly and on Linux.

In order to make sure I am actually using PREFER_NATIVE correctly, I tried it with iconv and it indeed picked up the system one instead. Does it mean that devel/libuuid/ is broken or maybe I missed something else?
