I am running Slackware64 14.2 + Multilib and this morning when I attempted
to build Sphinx Version 1.7.0 I experienced a python install failure:

   Installing sphinx-autogen script to /tmp/SBo/package-Sphinx/usr/bin
   make: Entering directory '/tmp/SBo/Sphinx-1.7.0/doc'
   Traceback (most recent call last):
     File "/tmp/SBo/package-Sphinx/usr/bin/sphinx-build", line 5, in
       from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
     File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py",
line 2927, in <module>
     File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py",
line 2913, in _call_aside
       f(*args, **kwargs)
     File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py",
line 2940, in _initialize_master_working_set
       working_set = WorkingSet._build_master()
     File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py",
line 635, in _build_master
     File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py",
line 943, in require
       needed = self.resolve(parse_requirements(requirements))
     File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py",
line 829, in resolve
       raise DistributionNotFound(req, requirers)
   pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'packaging' distribution was not
found and is required by Sphinx
   Makefile:20: recipe for target 'html' failed
   make: *** [html] Error 1
   make: Leaving directory '/tmp/SBo/Sphinx-1.7.0/doc'

I hesitate to attach my full Sphinx.SlackBuild-1.7.0.log ( 212 KB ) but I
have it if you need it.

I was able to build, install and run the previous version ( Sphinx-1.6.7 )
without error.

I BELIEVE I have the REQUIRED= Packages installed.

Note that Willy's SBo Updates for today ( 2018-02-24 ) included Version
Bumps for Jinja2 ( 2.7.3 -> 2.10 ) and docutils ( 0.13.1 -> 0.14 ).

These are the REQUIRES= Packages on my System:

# ls -1d


Do you have any idea what's wrong with my system ?

Thank you !
