2) is there a way to find out what package it was conflicting with,
and how? i imagine once i learn who the packager is, that part will
be easy to figure out.
I'm not the packager, but I have reviewed the package when it first hit Fedora,
there were no actual conflicts that I know if, its just that names like
"as-z80" and even more so makebin are just too generic. So we (Trond, the
packager and me) decided it would be better to avoid any possible conflicts
from the start.
