Synopsis: Ported Application conflict, xfmail and qt-3.2.1
State-Changed-When: Tue Jun 29 17:09:54 GMT 2004
This is not a bug, it's a feature.
In the real world it can happen, that two different people
produce two different applications that, by accident, use
same name for one of its files. FreeBSD packaging system
prevents you from installing both applications in the same
time, because the second package would overwrite files
installed by first package.
Now some good news - since May 2004, Qt and xfmail
no longer conflicts. Xfmail port was changed to install
one of it's files under different name, to avoid a conflict.
Next FreeBSD release will not have the problem you're reporting.
