Any python package that uses console_scripts in setup.py needs the
pkg_resources module from setuptools at run time. This generally means
anything that installs a CLI utility.
Package-only users do not get setuptools installed when they install
the packages of these ports currently, because USE_PYDISTUTILS=yes doesnt set
a RUN_DEPENDS on it.
This breaks console script invocation, with the following error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/local/bin/<script-name>", line 5, in <module>
from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
ImportError: No module named pkg_resources
The FreeBSD Python team has recently standardised on a consistent
installation pattern for all python software, whether pure-distutils or
setuptools based, and this run-time requirement is currently not being
satisfied, breaking ports that use that functionality.
This commit moves RUN_DEPENDS+=setuptools from the =easy_install *only*
case, to the default case. This does mean that py27-setuptools and
py33-setuptools cannot be installed concurrently, precluding dual stack
The FreeBSD Python team is working hard towards a future where multiple
python and packages versions *can* be installed concurrently, but it is
not explicitly supported in the current state. Improvements to FreeBSD's
ports and package frameworks will help achieve that goal.
