Kerberos login prompt when starting services after port install

I have FreeBSD 5.2.1 and installed the Heimdal-0.6 port. Ever since a
lot of the services are prompting for the Kerberos password when
restarting using startup scripts that use non-privileged users, like
amavisd-new and others. However, imapd for example, does not prompt, I
guess it does not login as a non-privileged user. I just hit Ctrl-C to
skip and then it bypasses the prompt and starts fine. How do I disable
this? Can it be disabled for certain users? Or how should I handle this?
These non-priv users do not have Heimdal accounts. I looked around pam.d
stuff and cannot find kerberos usage.
