Let's say there are two ports A & B.
They both provide libfoo.so.1 (and so register CONFLICTS with each other).
Now port C wants to use libfoo (and doesn't care if it gets it
from A or B).
What does port C list in it's LIB_DEPENDS?
What if it lists A and someone installs B... does A get registered as
the dependency when C is installed even though A is not installed?
This must have been solved already... I just don't see where.
