Whats the problem with that? An sold version indeed conflicts with a new
if not removed before installing.

Then I did miss something. Where do we check for old versions installed
to ensure that the new one is not just installed over it?

If its the case that if I have foo-1.0 installed, and I get still a
warning that I need to remove it first before installing foo-1.2
and the pkg_add/`make install` aborts - then its ok with me. But so
for I thought this was only true if I try to install the same
version again.
