games/gemrb: Makefile: note another issue for python3

This issue will (hopefully) be addressed in 0.9.1, and then we
can switch the package to python3.

GemRB 0.9.0 released! (A view to the future edition)

The GemRB team is proud to announce a new major release.

Over six years in the making, growing in scope with time, the
subviews branch was a true monster. But the quest to lay it to rest
has now been successfully completed, among other things modernizing
the GUI, drawing and input handling. For most use cases, there is
no need for the Widescreen mod any more (see screenshot or video

The SDL2 backend is now mature and default, OpenGL support is not
experimental any more, most benefiting Mac users. Additionally, in
the last minutes between the merge and this release, Python 3
support was added and our demo received an ending.

If you don’t believe that this is a big upgrade, consider just the
changes from the branch. It included 3527 commits, 668 changed
files, and over 30,000 changed lines of code. That’s about every
fifth line!

Notes to packagers:

Python 3 support has been added.

SDL2 is now the default backend and anyone still on SDL1 is encouraged
to switch.

If you are packaging from git sources, not the archive, either run
make fetch-demo-data first or manually include the files. These
are (currently two) bigger assets kept in a separate repository.
