[aur-general] Dependency conflicts in nvidia-utils-beta

I'm maintaining nvidia-utils-beta [1] in AUR and tomorrow someone had again 
problem with the following conflict:
nvidia-utils-beta requires xorg-server which requires libgl, but nvidia-utils-
beta conflicts with libgl as it provides it's own libgl library.

I added ligbl to provides=() array, but if you are installing nvidia-utils-
beta on system with installed libgl, pacman does not solve that. I also tried 
to put 'libgl=180.11' to provides=() in hope, pacman will consider it as 
update of standart libgl (7.2 currently) but it is also not a solution.

The only way is to pacman -Rd libgl and then to install nvidia-utils-beta, but 
I'd like to make it work without need of manually uninstalling libgl.

I don't have any more ideas of solution so I'd like to ask you for some ideas. 
Thank you
