I was building Apache, Kerberos, PHP etc. using DarwinPorts and had  
assumed that this would prevent these from linking against the system  
Kerberos libraries ( 

I tried with MIT/DarwinPorts Kerberos uninstalled and everything

while I was testing phpkrb5.)

Hopefully, this will save some other DarwinPorts user from these  
issues. (Sidebar: Does anyone know what the OS X equivalent of  
Linux's `ldd` is?)

Also: If anyone finds my move of phpkrb5 to PHP5 useful, feel free to  
send diffs, etc.
