I’ll happily attach a patched Portfile to that ticket once the port is updated to 2.6.13 (so I don’t have to go back and patch the old version). The working patch has been attached to the ticket for 17 months, so I am wondering if it has just been overlooked or if other concerns have kept this from making it into the port? The gnucash website still recommends the macports port to get python bindings on macs as they are excluded from binary distributions.

Hello David!
thanks for bringing this up to our attention, from time to time we need a little reminder on the stuff that still needs work 😊

I remember looking at #43254 some time ago and I can’t remember why I discarded it. Does it install the python packages in the correct location? I remember having to fight the build system to put the python module in ${frameworks_dir}/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/… instead of ${prefix}/lib/python2.7/…
