I don’t think so?

In my case, it turns out there were three “problematic” ports: gobject-introspection, fonttools and libpsl. All have python 3.7 hardcoded into their Portfile, so it’s not possible to use any other python version. They ought to be updated to allow for variant use.

py-brotli I upgraded to use python 3.8, I’m going to commit the wart.
