System: NetBSD mickey 7.0 NetBSD 7.0 (QUAD) #0: Mon Sep 28 11:54:36 CST 2015 oster@quad:/u1/builds/build265/src/obj/amd64/u1/builds/build265/src/sys/arch/amd64/compile/QUAD amd64

When building x11/py-qt4 for both python27 and python34, the following
error is observed:

=> Creating binary package /usr/pkgsrc/x11/py-qt4/work.mickey/.packages/py34-qt4-4.11.1nb1.tgz
===> Install binary package of py34-qt4-4.11.1nb1
pkg_add: Conflicting PLIST with py27-qt4-4.11.1nb1: bin/pylupdate4
pkg_add: 1 package addition failed
*** Error code 1


Desire to have python34 as the default version with:


in /etc/mk.conf .  Discover that some things (e.g. math/cantor, and
hence, meta/kde4) will not build with python34, and require python27.
Tell math/cantor to use python7.  Then watch kde4 build kate, which
wants py-kde4, which wants py-qt4, which needs py34-qt4... but that
has a PLIST conflict with the py27-qt4 built when making math/cantor.


Rename bin/pylupdate4 for one of the versions?

 Usually we rename all of them to bin/foo-${PYVERSSUFFIX} and sometimes
 add ALTERNATES files if its an enduser tool.

 I have no clue what pylupdate4 does though, i.e., if it's something a
 user would call or which is used during compilation.
