[kde-freebsd] qt-3.3 conflicts with qt4-webkit

Up to today, I've had the two ports in subject installed without any 
Today, while making some upgrades, I see they conflict...

Why do they suddenly do this?

I've looked in /usr/ports/x11-toolkits/qt33/Makefile: it CONFLICTS with 
linguist-0.* qt-2.* qt-3.0.* qt-3.1.* qt-3.2.* qt-designer-2.* 
xfmail-1.5.[0-5] xfmail-1.5.5_[1-2], but not with qt4-*.

In /usr/ports/www/qt4-webkit/Makefile, there is no CONFLICT at all, so I 
guessed this could come from /usr/ports/Mk/bsd.qt.mk.
There I find:

 > .if defined(QT_DIST)
 > ...
 > CONFLICTS_BUILD=        qt-3.* qt-copy-3.*

This was introduced on March 15.

So, provided I need both as slaves ports of other applications (and I 
don't think I'm alone), is there any way I can fix this?
Why was this conflict set up in the first place?
What is QT_DIST?

  bye & Thanks
