Currently the port build checks for existing conflicts very late after install-message target.
Just imagine a situation where one has to download a big tarball, build it, and out of sudden, when everything is prepared, even dependences were installed, the port will refuse to cooperate due to a conflict. Fine if it can be safely resolved, but quite annoying, when the conflicting app is needed and cannot be removed.
Moving check-conflicts target before check-depends into _SANITY_SEQ sounds quite logical and safe. See attached patch.
Fix: Apply the attached patch

- Convert NOMANCOMPRESS to NO_MANCOMPRESS to sync with src
PR: ports/136065 ports/127469
Submitted by: N.J. Mann <firstname.lastname@example.org> and Aldis Berjoza <email@example.com>
- Early identify port CONFLICTS
Submitted by: Piotr Smyrak <firstname.lastname@example.org>
- Add --no-same-permissions to the EXTRACT_AFTER_ARGS command.
Tijl Coosemans has been reported an issue that when root is extracting from the
tarball, and the tarball contains world writable files
(sysutils/policykit as an example), there is a chance that the files
gets changed by malicious third parties right after the extraction,
which makes it possible to inject code into the package thus compromise

I request revocation.
I think the example below sufficiently signifies why.
shows that I'm not alone with my opinion. I don't care about
wasting CPU time, not when the alternative is to waste my
precious brain time:

Reopen this, as I agree with the submitter, even if there could be a
better sulution that to back this out.
There are some situations where ports conflicts already at build stage
and thats why CONFLICTS should be checked prior to the build:
So please do not back out this change.
