Moin moin 

lang/spidermonkey60's only reason of existence was an older polkit version. 
The new polkit 0.118 depends on a python3 using spidermonkey.

So I don't see any reason to invest time in making it work in a python3 world.

  lang/spidermonkey60: mark deprecated (uses python2 to build)

  This port was added for a past polkit update.
  Newer spidermonkey version can be built with python3 and should be prefered.
