port build) because in security/heimdal the content of libgssapi_krb5 is
contained within libgssapi; and so doesn't exist as a separate library.
Would it be possible to wrap this dependency within a
Its fairly standard practice to test for HEIMDAL_HOME which invariably
implies that the security/heimdal port is being used, and incidentally
identifies where the libraries are located.

As this also adds the heimdal port dependency into +COMMENTS (& possible
MANIFEST?), as well as build dependency.
I'm not a port maintainer/committer, but for those that are, there are a

mail/dovecot2 was the most recent port that needed some additional
