Ok, that's good to know.

I assume the reason why the py25 thru py27 ports are called gtk not gtk2 is that the module name is pygtk not pygtk2. There was a recent push to make sure the entire module name appears in the port name; under that theory, the port should be called py-pygtk.

Whatever you change the name to, all ports depending on pygtk will have to have their dependencies updated and their revisions increased.

You can leave out "python.default_version 27"; that is the default, when "24" is not in python.versions.

The dependencies should go inside the "if {${name} != ${subport}}" block, since the stub port does not actually depend on those other ports. The "use_configure yes" command also needs to go in that block, since its presence globally will cause the stub port to fail. The build and destroot changes could also go in that block since the stub port does not actually build or destroot anything, though having them set globally does not seem to cause problems, and there is precedent for keeping them global, since we habitually set master_sites and checksums outside that block, even though the stub port does not fetch any files.

The active_variants 1.1 portgroup should be used, with which you no longer need to put the require_active_variants in a pre-configure block manually.
