libevent has a 'generator' script for regress.gen.c which is written in Python 2.4 syntax:
File "./event_rpcgen.py", line 39
SyntaxError: Missing parentheses in call to 'print'
event_rpcgen.py failed, regress.gen.[ch] will be reused.
This causes epoll to break, and libevent to be unusable. I had a brief look and it is using a print syntax that I do not even recognise, and I have no idea how to modernise it. Additionally, 2to3's output didn't run. It might be usable as a start, but I'm not sure.
