Certainly it's ok for a slave-port to conflict with its master if both
set CONFLICTS appropriately. But:
a) chinese/cdrtools and sysutils/cdrtools don't set CONFLICTS for each
b) Until today sysutils/cdrtools didn't install mkisofs and neither
   did chinese/cdrtools but chinese/cdrtools only patches the mkisofs
   sources. So you had two ports installing exacly the same stuff.

So this isn't an issue with sysutils/cdrtools as the master but
chinese/cdrtools doesn't/didn't make sense as a slave.

As I currently see it the best would be to turn chinese/cdrtools
into chinese/mkisofs-2byte (not sure about the name) and maybe move
chinese/mkisofs to chinese/mkisofs-big5. Does this make sense?
