Your not doing anything wrong, that's why I cc'd the last email to the
heimdal maintainer. I might look at making a patch to fix it today and
submit a PR as it appears the maintainer didn't respond to a previous PR

 From what I see heimdal includes the openssl man pages in it's list of
files it installs, the new pkg system is picking up the same files
installed by openssl and heimdal and preventing the conflict, while the
old install system overlooked it.

Either the man pages list is incorrect or heimdal installs a duplicate
copy of the openssl man pages - maybe this could be disabled if openssl
from ports is used.
