I found out that texlive-fontutils installs some other man pages in ${prefix}/share/man/man1 that conflict with other ports, e. g. bbox.1.gz conflicts with ps2eps, and fixtpps.1.gz and epsffit.1.gz conflict with psutils. In fact, texlive-fontutils installs many other man pages without the corresponding binaries.

I'd suggest a post-destroot phase that deletes the unwanted files.

The texlive manpage situation is a total disaster; man pages are scattered about in a number of packages they really shouldn't be, even if the corresponding programs are in different ports or not installed at all. It took a lot of effort just to get everything not to conflict with texlive-bin.

I'll take a look at texlive-fontutils. Has anyone run into any conflicts on anything other than man pages?

It bails as soon as it collides once, and using force to get by it will then override everything. I can then do a find for files with the same timestamp suffix that collided if you'd like.

Fixed in r69104 for texlive-fontutils and texlive-bin-extra. t1utils, psutils, and ps2eps install fine.

I don't know of any other conflicts but wouldn't rule out the possibility that there are some lurking elsewhere in texlive...
