Agreed, those messages are harmless and can be ignored.  However,
what's happening is that those ports are actually part of a
master-slave pairing, where the difference is enabling some feature
like gtk support.  Either you have a Makefile setting somewhere
(/etc/make.conf possibly) which unconditionally turns on that support,
or the port tries to be too clever for it's own good, and turns on
support for the feature automatically if it detects that the required
libraries are installed.  That effectively makes the master port
identical to the slave port, hence the error message.

        Cheers,
