XBPS utility to handle alternatives
xbps-alternatives utility lists or
sets the alternatives provided by installed packages. Alternatives are
classified by groups, and a group contains a number of symbolic links which
are applied when the group is set.
When a package is installed its alternative groups are registered in the package database (pkgdb).
When a package is removed its alternative groups are unregistered from the package database (pkgdb). If there are no more alternative groups, the package database removes the references. If there were alternative groups registered previously, the previous package is set as default provider.
Only one of the following modes can be used at a time.
xbps-checkvers(1), xbps-create(1), xbps-dgraph(1), xbps-digest(1), xbps-fbulk(1), xbps-fetch(1), xbps-install(1), xbps-pkgdb(1), xbps-query(1), xbps-reconfigure(1), xbps-remove(1), xbps-rindex(1), xbps-uchroot(1), xbps-uunshare(1), xbps.d(5)

Probably, but I try to make this not happen. Use it under your own responsibility and enjoy your life.
