Ah... I should have remembered xscreensaver<-> bsd-games issue.
Indeed for FC/E devel this issue is resolved by:

However, I forgot when moving man entry of FC5 core xscreensaver from
1 (this conflicts with barcode in FE) to 6, this again conflicts with bsd-games
(in FE).

Did this ever get fixed? I'm still getting transaction check errors.
