Impossible to fix file collision when upgrading qt 4.3 to 4.5

I’m trying to upgrade my qt 4.3 to 4.5. Version 4.5 seems to be split up in several ebuils, one of which is qt-dbus. When trying to install qt-dbus, it says that the files conflict with qt-4.3. This is only normal, because in version 4.3, the files did belong to qt.

The thing is, some time ago, collision protection was disabled by default, which I thought made sense because when I tried enabling it, I’d get errors like these all the time. I disabled it for now (by putting “-collision-protect -protect-owned” in the FEATURES variable in make.conf), to be able to install Qt, but because it is enabled by default, I’d rather not keep it disabled.

(Text was copied from the post I made on the Gentoo forum about it.)
