And here is an example of the situation such that, a (dependency of) a Python software ships binary without an official wheel build, makes us unable to use the software -- unless we want a gcc and all headers under /compat/linux.

Alternatively, there might not be that many Python 2 packages in CentOS shipping binary, maybe we could collect them altogether into 1 FreeBSD port?

See https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-emulation/2017-November/015527.html and following messages.  I would just like to know what software needs Linux python.
