Yes, it happens - for example parallel from misc/moreutils that I
maintain conflicts with system/parallel.  README in both contain
appropriate information.  It's really unpleasant when you find out
that the program you've just run is not what you think it is.  We
could have some automated scripts that could analyze list of files in
all precompiled packages and find duplicates, slackonly.com repository
could be used for this.
