#66498: octave python27 dependency

 When I saw https://trac.macports.org/ticket/66299 I was reminded of the
 {{{python27}}} dependency in the octave Portfile.

 The upstream documentation does not mention Python:


 So I rebuilt octave from source and kept the logfile to see if Python
 actually gets used. Indeed a file is generated:


 This file calls {{{system (["python ", script file,...}}}

 In other words, {{{octave}}} doesn't care about the Python version.

 Indeed, I have locally built octave against {{{python3x}}} several times
 in the past.
