Pav, I'm the OP, and described the problem in the first post. To recap,
though, say I want to upgrade from the databases/mysql50-client port to
databases/mysql51-client. Without taking extra steps such as using
-DDISABLE_CONFLICTS or removing the CONFLICTS definition from the
Makefile, I can't even start downloading the distfiles (using "make
fetch") until I pkg_delete the old version. With the old system, I could
do everything up through building the new port so that the time between
running pkg_delete and "make reinstall" is minimized.
What is the particular scenario that the new conflicts handling broke
for you? Often you really want to ignore locally installed packages and
then it's better to override LOCALBASE to /nonex or something similar,
instead of disabling conflict handling..
