SVN patch


_PyVerify_fd has been removed from CPython and it did nothing on Unix boxes. In case of python 3.6 usage of py-libxml2 throws undefined symbol _PyVerify_fd. 

Ticket to gnome is still open: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=776815

This patch solves problem. Issue is found by me during upgrade of textproc/itstool from 2.0.2 to 2.0.4.

Any reason that it's still open? Suggested patch looks trivial and very similar to the upstream fix: https://github.com/GNOME/libxml2/commit/d910e99c322a0895955038c700471e9b1fd91fa6

Just tested this change and it works fine for me.

  Remove usage of _PyVerify_fd().

  This function appears to be removed in python 3.5.0. Instead of adding a
  version check like the submitter proposed. Grab the upstream patch instead
  that just removes the function usage.
