I believe that it would be hard to install multiple pgsql versions at once in pkgsrc (new prefixes, buildlink files per prefix), and more importantly insufficient motivation to do so. So removing the version From PKGNAME and both simplifying and making less magic the CONFLICTS situation seems like a good thing.
