Are you referring to the 7.x version? If so, I haven't had a chance to 
test that yet.

Is it possible that these ports have alternate versions, similar to 
bison and bison2? If so, portmaster depends on appropriate CONFLICTS 
being set to handle that issue. If there are not alternate versions, 
please send me the directory from /var/db/pkg that is created after 
the port is installed, and the port itself and I'll take a look.

That's very interesting, what tool did you use to generate that?
