to ${LOCALBASE}/etc/pkg.conf

It's not really clean in that it just allows packages to stomp over each
other's files, but it lets you get the job done.

The conflict you're seeing is a bug somewhere between those two
packages.  One or other of them should probably be patched to rename the
offending file.  Please raise a PR so that at least gets onto the radar
of the package maintainers.
