You have propably built www/neon when security/krb5 was installed on
your system and later removed the krb5 port. 

I assume "neon-config --libs" still returns 

-L/usr/local/lib -rpath=/usr/lib:/usr/local/lib -L/usr/local/lib -lneon
-lintl -lssl -lcrypto -lz -L/usr/local/lib -Wl,-rpath -Wl,/usr/local/lib
-O2 -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe -march=pentium4 -lgssapi_krb5 -lkrb5
-lk5crypto -lcom_err -lexpat

on your system although does no longer exist.

On my system "neon-config --libs" returns:

-L/usr/local/lib -rpath=/usr/lib:/usr/local/lib -L/usr/local/lib -lneon
-lintl -lssl -lcrypto -lz -L/usr/lib -lgssapi -lkrb5 -lasn1 -lcrypto
-lroken -lcrypt -lcom_err -lexpat

You either have to rebuild www/neon or re-install security/krb5.
