[Slackbuilds-users] Installing Python packages

   I installed the Python packages virtualenv, virtualenvwrapper,
virtualenv-clone and their dependencies (e.g., tox, py, pluggy, stevedore)
and they're all in /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/.

   While I keep python2 installed for those applications built against it all
my new projects use python3 and I want to install/move all the above to
/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/ on this host.

   Looking at the virtualenv.SlackBuild script I see that it calls python
setup.py install.

   Should I remove all these packages, modify each build script to specify
python3, rebuild, and reinstall each one, or is there an easier way?
