As suggested in bug #71659:

------- Additional Comment #12 From MAL 2005-04-20 09:44 PST ------- 

So portage needs an /etc/portage/package.features, in which we can put:

dev-lang/perl       -collision-protect


dev-perl/PodParser  -collision-protect

And in the long term, portage could maintain a /usr/portage/profiles/package.features

Reproducible: Always

Actually, if this should work with perl, you would need something more like

dev-perl/* -collision-protect

I guess the effort on Bug 83622 might be finished sooner than this feature request gets somewhere.
