Limit net-im/*telepathy* components to use python2 only

All net-im/*telepathy* components should be limited to use python2 (2.7) only due to outdated and hardcoded realization in src.

PR214734 can be closed after this patch committed.

gnome@ maintains all of these ports.
Comment 2 Koop Mast freebsd_committer 2016-12-31 18:22:02 UTC
I wonder if "USES=python,2.7:build should be used instead to avoid the python2 meta port. But you probably need to ask someone from python@ about that.

Sources can use any python2; but no objections from me to use strict python:2.7 declaration, since ports doesn't have other 2.x releases anymore

Ouch. Missed the point — pointing dependency to metaport (python2 in the case) required to ensure in installed major links (python2, pydoc2, etc) and corresponded .pc file

https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=215921 have same case.
