gedit and gedit3 both have the same PKGNAME = gedit - is there any
reason you want to have both versions of gedit installed at once?

wiz@ clarified CONFLICTS in the meantime:

  19.1.7. Handling conflicts with other packages

  Your package may conflict with other packages a user might already have
  installed on his system, e.g. if your package installs the same set of files as
  another package in the pkgsrc tree or has the same PKGNAME.

  These cases are handled automatically by the packaging tools at package
  installation time and do not need to be handled manually.

so the case of "same PKGNAME" should be handled automatically.

Thanks: I added the depedency.

Does this wrap things up sufficiently?
