    x11/kdelibs2 does not list audio/arts as a conflicting package, while they
    register the same files. (Notably arts header files, libaries and support
    programs, since an earlier version of arts is part of x11/libkde2). This
    leads to a corrupt installation if arts is installed during installation of
    kde3, kdelibs2 is installed (because kde3 does not compile) and arts is
    removed (because it seems stale, having no packages depend on it).

    audio/arts does list x11/kdelibs2 as a conflicting package

    Observation (Or if you insist: Install audio/arts, install x11/kdelibs2,
    delete audio/arts, and watch x11/kdelibs2 become crippled)
    List audio/arts as a conflicting package for x11/kdelibs2
