Moin moin 

lang/spidermonkey68's only reason of existence is a never committed dupdate of polkit to 0.117 (ovecome by 0.118). 

So I don't see any reason to invest time in making it work in a python3 world.

  lang/spidermonkey68: mark deprecated

  lang/spidermonkey68 was added to be able to update polkit to 0.117.
  Which has in the meantime been updated to 0.118 which builds with a
  python3 using spidermonkey version.
