Doesn't work.

Doesn't throw any errors, but doesn't install Python either.

No python-loader directory in /opt/local/lib/gnumeric/1.6.3/plugins, no 
Python console in the Tools menu, and trying a py_<whatever> function in a 
sheet raises an error.

It does seem to install some other plugins however, which weren't installed 
with the "standard" portfile. Strange. Although the only option I removed was 
the Python support option.

This is apparently just utterly broken.

Like _lots_ of ports I've tried, unfortunately.
