Building everything for all Python ABIs is not required in case of majority of packages, which optionally install Python bindings. Makefiles of many packages (including dev-vcs/subversion) provide separate targets for building/installation of core libraries and various bindings. Example: src_compile() { emake || die if use python; then python_copy_sources bindings/python build_python_bindings() { emake \ PYTHON_INCLUDES="$(python_get_includedir)" \ PYTHON_SITE_PACKAGES="$(python_get_sitedir)" \ python_bindings } python_execute_function -s --source-dir bindings/python build_python_bindings fi } -- Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis
