dolfin and vtk: python version

Keywords: haspatch Cc:
Port: dolfin


While dolfin only works with python-2.7 (see #51485), the vtk dependency must be installed with +python27 variant. Otherwise, library linking errors result during DOLFIN JIT compilation when using fenics/dolfin from python. Adding:

require_active_variants vtk python27

to the Portfile should resolve this issue. See attached patch.

In be6cba710346110214b39095237ad7edcd4e3334/macports-ports:

dolfin: update to 2017.2.0

This changes dolfin (and all other fenices project ports) to python3 since
that is what upstream has done. Also, since VTK support has been ripped out in
favor of matplotlib, this closes the vtk tickets.

Fixes: #51485
