* checking 46 files for package collisions
* This package will overwrite one or more files that may belong to other
* packages (see list below). You can use a command such as `portageq
* owners / <filename>` to identify the installed package that owns a
* file. If portageq reports that only one package owns a file then do
* NOT file a bug report. A bug report is only useful if it identifies at
* least two or more packages that are known to install the same file(s).
* If a collision occurs and you can not explain where the file came from
* then you should simply ignore the collision since there is not enough
* information to determine if a real problem exists. Please do NOT file
* a bug report at http://bugs.gentoo.org unless you report exactly which
* two packages install the same file(s). Once again, please do NOT file
* a bug report unless you have completely understood the above message.

mattst: how do we want to resolve this one? If cpufrequtils is meant to replace the cpupower stuff in the kernel tools, I could turn it off there. But I'm not sure which side is newer.
cpufrequtils is replaced by the cpupower stuff.
anything new on this? maybe you can disable installation of the header file via a useflag, which needs cpufreq-utils?
bug #410439 provides ebuilds and init scripts for cpupower.
3.6 in tree with this fixed.
