The following block:
#LICENSE_FILE= Not yet packaged in sdist
# Actually 2.7, 3.4+
USE_PYTHON= autoplist distutils
Results in the following portlint output:
===> Validating port with portlint
FATAL: Makefile: extra item "USES" placed in the LICENSE section.
FATAL: Makefile: extra item "USE_PYTHON" placed in the LICENSE section.
2 fatal errors and 0 warnings found.
This issue may be more generic in nature, and exhibit itself in other rules relating to block/section identification or order
Forgot to note, in case it helps with analysis or a fix, removing any *one* of the comments results in expected behaviour: looks fine.
