avahi-libdns and mDNSResponder



Why oh why are there projects that provide the same functionality and
files in the same locations? These two ports, avahi-libdns and
mDNSresponder, have given me nothing but PROBLEMS when using portmaster
to upgrade (or any other tool to install something else, such as KDE4).

Those two ports, along with the issues with having upgraded from jpeg-7
to jpeg-8, are proving to be a huge headache. I'm doing my very best to
work around these issues, but I just don't know how to anymore.

Right now I'm trying to run portmaster -it graphics/gimp so I can
rebuild gimp to link against the latest jpeg (which is now jpeg-8_1 but
I'm not upgrading jpeg again, at least not yet) and make sure everything
else that depends on jpeg can link against the new one. Either I allow
gimp dependencies to build, or I encounter issues like libwebkit being
linked against jpeg-7 (what? I thought I took care of all those issues,
grrr). Or I allow all the dependencies to be rebuilt/upgraded and then
watch it fail because of needing mDNSresponder which conflicts with the
currently installed avahi-libdns (because mDNSrepsonder and avahi-libdns
apparently provide the /same exact thing/).

I cannot be the only person having problems like this.

To make this marginally on-topic, here is how the build process from
portmaster -i graphics/gimp
errors out.

For simplicities sake, I'm answering y to all questions regarding
upgrading relevant ports:
