Which also sucks sometimes; qv devel/svk which depends on
devel/subversion-perl even if I have devel/subversion WITH_PERL=yes
installed. Now because subversion-perl and subversion apparently don't
have the correct CONFLICTS lines, this suddenly worked, but if they do
conflict it is a problem.

How do you propose to handle this?
