port name confliction and lib dir problems about porting

    I'm porting evan's debugger to freebsd, which name will be
devel/edb. It's an excellent ollydbg-like debugging tool. Now almost
all work has been done, but I run into two problems.

    1. There's already one port named edb (databases/edb,
Enlightenment Database Library). Is there any convention that I should
follow to rename the new port? It has a man file edb.1. What should I
do with it after I rename the port, eg, how to rename a file in
    2. It installs some library files to lib or lib64 based on OS
arch. How to specify lib path in pkg-plist?
