We could check almost all packages by looking at the PLISTs. This
could be automated somewhere and checked, e.g., prior building the
package (aborting the build if the check failed). However, I agree
that disabling the check for $prefix could be good too!
The work directories are a different issue though. We cannot easily
check for conflicts inside the distfiles (well, we could by
inspecting 'tar tzf's output, for example) nor the files they produce
