Duplicates like this are usually a result of setting variables in
/etc/make.conf.  This causes the package name of some ports to change,
and that can result in pkgname conflicts.

The conflict arises when eg. you have a master-slave setup, where the
slave port is used to provide a different set of default options.  So,
for instance one of the packages you highlight is petsc-mpich-2.3.3.p0_6,1

That package would normally be obtained from math/petsc-mpich:

# cd math/petsc-mpich
# make -V PKGNAME

but you can also end up with the same pkg name from math/petsc by
setting WITH_MPI:

# cd math/petsc
