Description Joseph S. Atkinson 2009-01-12 21:40:01 UTC

For people who set PYTHON_DEFAULT_VERSION=python2.6, parts of xcb are forcing the installation and utilization of python2.5. Python 2.6 is backwards compatible with 2.5 and builds fine.


change USE_PYTHON from "2.5" to "2.5+" in Makefile for each port

PYTHON_DEFAULT_VERSION=python2.6 then `make install` libxcb and xcb-proto
