I wonder where they come from.  Is this from a dependency or are there
actually two such classes?

Is it possible that these come from a package, where a renamed dependency is
used in the original build system, thus avoiding the name duplication? I will have a
look at this package source... Will report back if I can confirm this assumption.

To satisfy the dropseq-tools build system the dependencies a symlinked
to the build directory.  I suspect that the error is something to do
with that.

Is it correct that this would ensure that in case of duplicate class
names this would pick the class from the current package?
