Re: Conflict between print/xpdf and print/poppler-utils

I'm building my pkgsrc-2009Q3 packages, and I'm running into the
following conflict.

print/xpdf and print/poppler-utils install nearly the same files. The
main difference is that xpdf actually installs a PDF viewer (xpdf) and
that poppler-utils installs an additional utility program (pdftohtml).

The conflict is quite annoying, since poppler-utils is required by a
higher-level package that I want (scribus, via cups), but I also want a
PDF viewer (in fact I want several, for use in case of compatibility

How to resolve this?

I wish I knew. I've had to give up on xpdf; I now use epdfview and evince, and sometimes gv, but I'm not happy about it.
