Files conflicts in ports

Dear port maintainers,

It appears that a number of ports install files with the same names at 
the same locations,
causing file conflicts and unexpected behaviors for users.

To help solving this issue I ran a tool to list per maintainer the 
conflicting ports with
the list of impacted files ; the list is updated every day at 4am UTC.

I believe most of the conflicts are trivial and can be solved with a 
proper declaration in the CONFLICTS variable.
So take a look at it and don't hesitate to come back to me if you have 

best regards,

- rodrigo
