Both come from "The Scientific Computing Toolkit" (Sandja Lab, mpqc) an extraordinary quantum mechanical package that I used successfully, but one that unfortunately is not being developed toward organic chemical applications. Therefore I don't use it any more. There is a relationship with "ghemical" that I don't use either on this amd64 system (I barely run 'startx' on rare occasions)

Well mpqc seems to use it too.  It seems odd that libsc8 conflicts with
libsc7, in fact I would think that is a bug and should be reported as
such.  If nothing else it should conflict if it can't be installed at
the same time.
