Yesterday, I rebuilt on a clean Raspberry using
FreeBSD-10.0-STABLE-arm-armv6-RPI-B-20140209-r261642.img from
snapshots. Same result. 

I also tested security/krb5-maint. Same result. 

Currently, I am building the MIT-Kerberos ports in a chroot on
10-STABLE i386 machine to check if something breaks on the Raspberries -
admittedly, Raspberries are not exactly what you would use to compile
packages for redistribution, even if it would offer possibilities for
a smile when thinking of a massive Raspberry-cluster ...

I am hesitant to file a PR to request security/krb5 be marked broken on
ARM as other Raspberry distros (ArchLinux e.g) have krb5 in their
prebuilts and I did not find any mention of problems.

Punctuation matters:
"Lets eat Grandma." or "Lets eat, Grandma." - Punctuation saves lives.
"A panda eats shoots and leaves." or "A panda eats, shoots, and
leaves." - Punctuation teaches proper biology.

"With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not
necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to
land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly
overhead." (RFC 1925)
