Sorry, I lost track with emails.
Next time, do the 'rm -rf /usr/local/* /var/db/pkg/*'. It works so
much better than that 'pkg_delete -a'.

I think there might be leftover of gconf stuff that didn't got delete
when you ran 'pkg_delete -a'. I have no idea why you are having this

What do you have HEIMDAL_HOME in your make.conf?

It's a bit same behavior with NO_KERBEROS by using heimdal port
instead of base system. Do you have heimdal installed? It looks like
evolution port found krb5 library, but it's in base system instead of
ports so it didn't install heimdal port. I will know more after work
when I can access to the FreeBSD box.
