py-lirc-deprecate-and-set-to-expire.patch

Hi,

since the support for Python 2.7 was removed in ports r559531 the port comms/py-lirc is no longer usable because it's not compatible with Python 3:

> >>> import pylircmodule
> Traceback (most recent call last):
>   File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
> ImportError: /usr/local/lib/python3.7/site-packages/pylircmodule.so: Undefined symbol "Py_InitModule"

There hasn't been a new release for more than 15 years either.  Hence it makes sense to deprecate the port and set an expiration date.
