both libboost-date-time1.34.1 and libboost-date-time1.34.1-2 provide
/usr/lib/libboost_date_time-gcc42-1_34_1.so.1.34.1 without conflicting
each other. same applies to the other libboost packages.

since libboost-*1.34.1-2 have always been only in experimental, i'm
not really sure if such conflic should be deployed.
