There is a bug in the mutt ports concerning security/heimdal and
security/krb5. In short mutt will fail to install (build?) when heimdal is
installed because it expects krb5 and both ports (heimdal and krb5)
conflict. As a matter of fact security/heimdal is a Gnome dependency.
I reported this to the maintainer some days ago but haven't received an
answer, yet.
I don't know for libvorbis and grub.

Best regards,
