They're both Perl modules so I went with p5-${DISTNAME}.  Also FWIW this 
remains consistent with the FreeBSD port which also uses p5-AxKit.  As 
of today they have AxKit-1.6.1 which doesn't require Perl-Tidy so I 
could only guess they'd opt to do the same with it.

I think generally if it's a Perl module (runs `perl Makefile.PL' to 
build itself) then it's a p5 prefixed package...  Just a guess based on
