I am not sure if this is a bug or missing feature; so I sent this to the ml 

Sometime a package depends on a "meta" package which is provided by more than 
one packages. For example "libgl" or "smtp-server". At the moment pacman just 
installs the first package it founds which is the wrong decision for most 

So pacman has to ask the user in such cases.
