On two different systems I see:

  security/py-{acme,certbot}: Make argparse a conditional dependency

  Backport an upstream patch [1][2] to setup.py making argparse a conditional
  dependency. Without this change, the following error is observed at run-time:

    pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'argparse' distribution was not found and is required by certbot

  This is due to the separate argparse distribution (via PyPI) no longer being
  required for Python versions >= 2.7 and >= 3.2, as they contain the argparse
  module in the standard library.

  Since FreeBSD only supports Python versions with the argparse module built in,
  *and* having removed the devel/py-argparse port, the install_requires=argparse
  dependency cannot be satisfied, as install_requires is only relevant for non
  standard library (PyPI) packages/dependencies.
