It depends what your intentions as a port maintainer are, i.e. should opera
and linux-opera coexist or not. You could use CONFLICTS, USE_LINUX_PREFIX
or rename the binary, I can not judge what the best solution in your case
could be, that's what port maintainers are there for.

Anyway, thanks for caring about your ports
