As Jesse said, If it's just needed to run it, not to build it, a single
opengrok will suffice with boths tomcat in optdepends. However if tomcat
is needed at build time (ie you have to put one or the other in
makedepends, or here, in depends), then I would name them
opengrok-tomcat6 and opengrok-tomcat7 to be the most explicit.
