Create a symbol link for python after installing it on OpenBSD

After installing Python on FreeBSD:

# pkg_add python
quirks-2.304 signed on 2017-04-02T15:01:33Z
Ambiguous: choose package for python
a       0: <None>
        1: python-2.7.13p0
        2: python-3.4.5p2
        3: python-3.5.2p2
        4: python-3.6.0p0
Your choice: 4

It won’t create a symbol link by default:

# python
ksh: python: not found

So for using it handily, you can create a symbol link yourself:

# cd /usr/local/bin
# ln -s python3.6 python
