Are you using Kerberos from ports, or from the base system?

If the former, then as part of the major version update, you should be
reinstalling all of your ports anyhow.

If the latter, then the step in the upgrade which deletes old 8.x shlibs
will have you covered.  (That's 'make delete-old-libs' if compiling the
OS from source, or the final invocation of freebsd-update if you used
that method.)
