Pacman installs in / and /usr. Pkgsrc by default in /usr/pkg.
So there shouldn't be a problem with eachother overwriting files.
But of course there will be bad interaction of headers and libs,
this is probably limited mostly to compiling stuff. But if you
don't add /usr/pkg to PATH and ld.conf etc. at least pacman
packages won't mind pkgsrc. One way to solve it would be to use
chroot or jail environments.
