Forcing the install should be OK in this case.

Both the mod_perl and rrdtool ports should be updated to not install  
that file.

If you could file a bug report so that the maintainer(s) know that it  
needs to be fixed, that would be great.

[You can reference the ImageMagick and git-core ports as including  
examples of how to fix it]
