I think so too. There is another pair of other build-tool packages that
conflict (devel/gnome-common conflicts with devel/autoconf-archive) and
they don't cause me great trouble.

This may not be the latest version in the 4.x series though. I just did
this one because it was already unfinished in wip, and it seemed to make
sense to get this one working before the next big change.
