 Replying to [ticket:53125 ksze]:
 > `eigen3-devel` is a sub-port of `eigen3`, and the two ports conflict
 each other. However, their descriptions are exactly the same.
 > What's the difference between the two?
 > I would presume `eigen3-devel` is a development version,

 > The description does not say.
 > Please clarify in the port description.
