Cinnamon install unmet requirements

Question

Doing a fresh install into a virtualbox environment. Goal was to test cinnamon environment.

All steps from Funtoo Install page were done without problem.
"First Steps" done: include setting profiles and mix-ins.
X-org install completed and tested (note use VMSVGA video - easiest without need of extra drivers).

Attempt to install cinnamon fails with error stating "unmet requirements".

Indications are that ebuild specifies python targets for python 3.4 and 3.5 but latest uses 3.6.6.
A quick look at a couple of other cinnamon ebuilds show python 3.6 target in ebuild.
 

Bug? Ebuild missed in updates?
How best to resolve?

The line 

any-of ( python_targets_python3_4 python_targets_python3_5)

says it all. You need to activate either python 3.4 or 3.5 for this to work.

You didn't see this in the original post?

I did see this but your image still shows PYTHON_TARGETS="python2_7 -python3_4 -python3_5". So the output of this emerge is expected.

How did you set your python targets?
