Ah, I did not know about that conflict, but installing from ports will 
probably just give you the same conflict (since the package is just a 
pre-built port).
I would recommend that you just download our PBI module for skype[1] and 
build the PBI with EasyPBI really quick. It only took about 10 minutes 
on my system, and 90% of that time was just downloading files. That 
should let you install it without any of the conflicts.
