Remove Heimdal Kerberos from my FreeBSD

    Yes, i deleted it along with all libs related to it. This caused telnet/ssh/etc to stop working. So i rebuilt the world with NO_KERBEROS=yes and now all is like a charm -- no Heimdal Kerberos and no software depending on it.
    I think making the Heimdal Kerberos part of the base FreeBSD OS is bad idea, but linking base software (like telnet, ssh), which is part of the base FreeBSD OS, against it, is very very bad idea.
