I thought CONFLICTS is list of regexps against full package name, so you
need to specify version matching part as well, i.e. linux_base-fc4*.

For me conflicts work after this change:

linux_base-gentoo* linux_base-fc4* linux_base-fc6* linux_base-f7*
% make check-conflicts 

===>  linux_base-f8-8_7 conflicts with installed package(s): 

      They install files into the same place.
      Please remove them first with pkg_delete(1).
*** Error code 1
