After the upgrade to pyhton-2.7 on my amd64 box and the removal of python-2.6 mgltools-autodocktools-1.5.4-r2 refuses to launch. I reported the problem upstream in the forums.
Would it be possible to use python-2.6 for the whole mgltools package? It was working beautifully with python-2.6.
Run AutoDockTools from /usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/AutoDockTools

The problem is gone and the program launches after commenting with a # the 263th line in /usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/ViewerFramework/VF.py
Is it possible to include a patch for this?
Even better, is it possible to update also the ebuilds so that they install the latest 1.5.4 revision 28 instead of the current revision 24?
Thanks for your effort. Do we have access to some sort of VCS of upstream? or are they willed to release a new version?
Writting that in an eclass is on my todo. Probably, we should restrict py 2.7 here first.
I bumped to latest version. You have to reemerge all packages. But still the py2.7 is there.

py 2.7 is also fixed
Thanks a lot, Justin. I can't express with words how much I appreciate your hard work and dedication to make Gentoo the best possible Linux option for scientists.
Isn't it fixed now?
Yes, it is indeed :)
Okay closing then
