I'm testing the new pkgng from 10-CURRENT but it seems to not having an
option for forcing registering a package. I have got a lot texlive-*
packages (more than 1000) but I cannot upgrade them, I still got:

Installing [pkg_name]: [pkg_name] conflicts with [other_pkg_name]
(installs files into the same place)

Googling through "(installs files into the same place)" shows that a lot
of people have such a problem with other ports. So I wonder why there is
no an option to force registering a port?

Below is a small patch for pkg, after setting FORCE_PKG_REGISTER env
variable you can force registering a port. May it should be other var
