According to upstream realease notes, this port should work just fine with Python 3.
This port was restricted to Python 2.7 because its dependencies were lacking Python 3 support at that time (see https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=219322).
We should test this port a bit and enable Python 3 if possible.

Give this port a bit more time to switch to Python 3
We just have to adjust the build process and do some tests, as Python 3 is
supported according to upstream.

Just with this change it fails to configure, claiming that it cannot find py-gdbm even though that is pre-installed as a dependency.
Closing this PR in favor of 250354.
