Someone had recently introduced (by mistake) a dependency on 'imake'
rather than 'imake-4' in a port.  It went uncaught for a period of
time until I tried to verify that I really could nuke 'imake' ...
and found that I couldn't.

So, systems that installed whatever port that was, during that
window, would have wound up with both.
