Hello Matthew,

To be honest, I am unable to tell whether it's from the base system or the
ports. How do I differentiate? I'd rather clean everything to do with the
ports and use the one in the base system.
I updated from source using the guidelines from and yes,
I did the 'make delete-old-libs' but problem still abound.

How do I get rid of all instances of krb5 and gssapi and rely on base
system ones, if that sounds like a sane question?
