We already discussed this many times. Registering CONFLICTS as it is documented
helps binary package managers (nih, pkgin) to build a correct "update
downloading extra binaries. pkg_summary(5) should contains all required
meta information about packages including CONFLICTS.
The fact that pkg_add is smart enough to detect file conflicts at
doesn't help much.
