This issue came up last week:

Two possible solutions for you:
There is a command in fink to overwrite:
sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite fname
where fname is the .deb file for ncl.
You may have an older ncarg package, you need 4.3.1-2 to avoid this
problem. Try "fink update ncarg".
Please let us know if either solves your problem.
