yehyeah, i can attest to that: likewise i ran into problems with a
devuan/testing system 18 months (or so) ago, it wouldn't actually
install trinity *at all* due to package conflicts.

 basically this is the usual issue with having separate package
repositories that are not compiled often enough: the fact that there
are *two* completely separate repositories means that anyone who wants
to use devuan/testing - which will be critical moving forward for
anyone doing any kind of software development or for anyone who wishes
to e.g. use the absolute latest CUPS drivers for example so that their
MODERN printers work - is basically SOL.

 this can be entirely solved by *devuan* adding the TDE packages to
devuan/testing... and compiling them on their own server farms,
signing them with *their* package keys.

 but yes, please: fix the darn /opt path first!!  libraries should go
in /usr/lib/tde (or somesuch), qt3 should go in /usr/lib/qt3 to keep
the namespaces totally separate from qt4, qt5, and so on.
