Those from ports uses MIT Kerberos 5 realization. Maybe they work with
Heimdal also...

This way means applying patches every build/install world. And there
is no guarantee that pathes apply well. And it is really a *hack*.

I try to find a way to DTRT (do the right thing).

So far I have two workarounds (may be *hacks* all together):

o  install heimdal from ports and change library searching path (to
   search /usr/local/lib before athers). Don't know if it may break

o  install heimdal from ports with LOCALBASE=/usr. The port should be
   reinstalled after make world.

Thus neighter of them are good...
