i think there could be a problem with python expat module.
python 2.3 build expat as one of the multiple packages.
python 2.4 does not - its part of core.
so this means every python port which uses expat package in a way like
and has not defined python version 2.3 will not build,
textproc/py-xml (uses expat as flavor)
not sure, but the same problem maybe for 2.3 python-mpz package.
