MIT instead of Heimdal

Over the last several months I have been splattering the various freebsd
mailing lists with questions about using MIT Kerberos instead of
Heimdal.  My reasons for this are simply, I want MIT Kerberos.  But, in
all my googling and archive archaeology I have yet to find a clean way
to implement this due to FreeBSD's default to Heimdal and it's
associated dependencies.  I do not upgrade my systems every nanosecond,
choosing to stay with what works.  I recently did a portmanager -u to
get any security fixes and garfed Samba and others due to dependencies
on Heimdal.  Is there a clean solution to this and if so where can I
find it.  I want no hand holding, just a clue.

The output of uname -a is;
FreeBSD 6.1-STABLE FreeBSD 6.1-STABLE #0: Sat Jul
