Got reply from the maintainer and according to the mail the maintainer
is going to make relevant changes in Makefile (may be like making
these 2 libraries mutually exclusive so that user shouldn't able to
select both of them ?)

Approach was right. I had to do `make config` in /devel/pcre (the
offending port) instead of /misc/freebsd-doc-en and then deselct any
one of the libraries amongst libedit and readline.

#freebsd on freenode helped.
