I have the following .pc file for a project:

> # Document  $Id$
> # Summary   News for every release.
> Name: chemical-mime-data
> Description: Chemical MIME and file type support for KDE, GNOME and ROX desktops.
> Version: 0.1.94
> URL: http://chemical-mime.sf.net
> Conflicts: chemicalmime
> Requires: shared-mime-info gnome-mime-data-2.0

Version 0.19 of shared-mime-info creates a conflict.
(chemicalmime (any) (null) conflicts with chemical-mime-data 0.1.94)

Why does it output this message? chemicalmime is not installed, so I'm
surprised by this output. And I do not understand, why shared-mime-info
creates the conflict. Could someone please explain this behaviour to me?

Regards, Daniel
