i met the problem on both a 5.3 and a couple of 4.10->11 fresh installs.

i can't reproduce the error anymore, but it goes like this:

- start the build of gnome2 by hitting make install clean
- gnome2 builds stuff, comes to build ximian-evolution
- ximian-evolution build halts on an error of undefined reference to krb5 
- i install krb5 from ports/security, restart the build ximian-evolution 
(which resolves), then the gnome2 can start again

i'll take it installing krb5 before gnome2 prevents the problem

i suggest gnome2 to add kerberos5 as a dep to allow ximian evolution to build.
