./lang/python36, Interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming language

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 3.6.1, Package name: python36-3.6.1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented
programming language that combines remarkable power with
very clear syntax. For an introduction to programming in
Python you are referred to the Python Tutorial. The
Python Library Reference documents built-in and standard
types, constants, functions and modules. Finally, the
Python Reference Manual describes the syntax and semantics
of the core language in (perhaps too) much detail.

Python's basic power can be extended with your own modules
written in C or C++. On most systems such modules may be
dynamically loaded. Python is also adaptable as an exten-
sion language for existing applications. See the internal
documentation for hints.

This package provides Python version 3.6.x.

Log message:
Update PLIST.{Linux,SunOS} to reflect removed plat-* modules.

According to Python 3.6 changelog:

 The undocumented IN, CDROM, DLFCN, TYPES, CDIO, and STROPTS modules have been
 removed. They had been available in the platform specific Lib/plat-*/
 directories, but were chronically out of date, inconsistently available across
 platforms, and unmaintained. The script that created these modules is still
 available in the source distribution at Tools/scripts/h2py.py.

No PKGREVISION bump since they failed to install on these platforms.

TODO: PLIST.IRIX entries seems to still contains plat-* modules but the ones
TODO: contained are not explicitly documented in the changelog, so they can
TODO: maybe still installed.

Pointed out by Joyent's Linux and SmartOS bulk builds and thanks to <jperkin>
for testing it!
