Hi,

I'm completely confused by PYTHON_TARGETS, PYTHON_SINGLE_TARGET. What should I set in my make.conf?
I've got python 2.7 3.2 and 3.3 installed (somehow) and the following in my make.conf:

PYTHON_TARGETS="python2_7 python3_2 python3_3"
PYTHON_SINGLE_TARGET="python2_7 python3_2 python3_3"
USE_PYTHON="2.7 3.2 3.3"

Do I need all of this? What should I be using?

The most appropriate doc right now is the User's Guide, though I'm going to write a better one on the Wiki sometime soon.

Long story short, if you really want to play with it, currently you need to set PYTHON_TARGETS and USE_PYTHON to matching versions. Then, PYTHON_SINGLE_TARGET to one of the versions in PYTHON_TARGETS.

USE_PYTHON is used for old Python packages. PYTHON_TARGETS are used by new packages when the package can be made to work with more than one installed Python version. PYTHON_SINGLE_TARGET is used when the package can only work with one Python implementation of choice.

Thanks for the link.

Since I don't want to play with it at all, can I just remove all those?
I assume sensible defaults will apply...
