Subject: Missing CONFLICTS in the new swig13 package (was: CVS commit: pkgsrc/devel/swig13)

I had a swig-build installed before, then deleted the old p5-subversion
and tried to build the new one.
At that stage the new p5-subversion wanted the new swig13 package and installed it:

===> Registering installation for swig-1.3.24
pkg_create: Overwriting /usr/pkg/bin/swig - pkg swig-build-1.3.19 bogus/conflicting?

If this package should really replace the old ones then it needs
a CONFLICTS line, like this one:

CONFLICTS= swig-build-*

And maybe for the other modules too, because they have no DEPENDS line for swig-build
and would stay around even if you delete swig-build.
