 A number of numpy dependents have started specifying `oldest-supported-
 numpy` as a build-time dependency. See for example #66606, #66619, #66898.
 In MacPorts we don't have the problem that this is intended to solve,
 since the numpy version at runtime will always be >= the one at build
 time. Patching out the dependencies in each port works, but I think the
 most expedient general solution is for our numpy ports to simply install a
 dist-info directory containing appropriate metadata, such that these
 dependencies will be considered satisfied.
