And it looks as though, /usr/src/kerberos5/ sets OPENLDAPBASE 
to /usr/local if WITH_OPENLDAP is defined.

So, chicken and egg problem for you, either fix your openldap build, that 
currently depends on a non-existing (from 6.x I presume) or unset 
WITH_OPENLDAP for the purpose of building world and then upgrade your ports.


Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
    and never get to the software part.
