If you do think there are good reasons to keep both versions around for a
while (there are other applications in ports depending on qwt ... but not
many, I count two), I would suggest contacting the developers and work
together with them to resolve any name conflicts in a way that allows
everything to live in the same installation prefix, otherwise you will either
end up violating hier(7) and/or creating ports that require lots of patching
in every future port that needs to depend on them.
I realise that's not a very hands-on suggestion, but from experience I can
only advise against trying to fix planned obsolescence schemes all by
yourself, since it will usually only create more problems later.
