I don't believe the FreeBSD security/heimdal shouldn't have removed any
system files. I've been over the port Makefile, and I can't see anything
that would be doing that ... the whole idea of installing them in
/usr/local/ is to make sure they don't clobber the system files.

However .... check the contents of your /etc/make.conf. If you've
redefined the location of some of the "HOME" variables (like
HEIMDAL_HOME), that might be causing a problem.
