Description JD Horelick 2012-05-03 10:00:25 UTC
Both the charybdis and ircd-ratbox ports provide files such as /usr/local/bin/ircd and /usr/local/lib/libratbox.so among other files and they conflict with no warnings.


One of these ports should probably block the other.
How-To-Repeat: install both charybdis and ircd-ratbox from ports, note that the second install overwrites many files of the first.

Yeah, unless a better solution can be found these ports should be set to 
conflict with each other. Well spotted.

Ratbox conflicts registered; charybdis already had the converse.
