port name conflicts

The ports www/clearsilver and www/clearsilver-python both exist.  The
latter calls the former with WITH_PYTHON enabled.  So www/clearsilver
detects WITH_PYTHON, and changes its options accordingly ... but also
changes its package name with:

  .if defined(WITH_PYTHON)

The result is that if WITH_PYTHON=yes is in /etc/make.conf, then these
ports have identical names, causing a conflict when `make index` runs.

What's the solution here?  Don't put WITH_PYTHON in /etc/make.conf?
