Most emacs modules/packages have no common files when they are built
with EMACS_TYPE=xemacsXXX and EMACS_TYPE=emacsYY

But they are always marked as conflicting by default.

I think this mark should be removed and really conflicting packages
should be either marked as such individually or conflict should be
resolved homehow.

Full description of the problem with a proof of the above statement
is available here.
