... or not.  It still repros with cached packages, sometimes.  I have no idea
why it is intermittent.

In any case, based on debug logs the problem is related to
pkg_jobs_set_execute_priority(), which may split an upgrade job into separate
install/delete jobs upon conflicts.  Conflicts are reported in this case, as
the new FreeBSD-utilities contains files from the old FreeBSD-libbsdxml etc.. 
There is some logic to update job priorities in this case (and presumably the
problem would not occur if the new FreeBSD-utilities is installed after the old
one is deleted), but I don't quite understand the code yet, or in particular
this "remote"/"local" package abstraction.
