Why does installing python > py36 result in bringing in so many
dependencies like libXdmcp etc, when the intent is to just run python
interpreter from cli? Is this because of the way it's built for cygwin? I
build python all the time in NetBSD using pkgsrc and in FreeBSD ports,
without needing all of those deps. I don't know much about how cygport
works, is there a repo of cygport files I can look at?
