# Can you be a bit more precise about the breakage? I've had "MKKERBEROS=no"

I don't know what you're looking for; if I don't say MKKERBEROS=no on the
command line, I see "-DKRB5" and "-DKRB4" show up in the make output.

And you can't say that make doesn't (eventually) look at /etc/mk.conf,
since every other parameter in there does get set (LOCALBASE -> /usr/local,
X11BASE -> /usr/X11, &c.).

Blah, sorry to take up your time while I turned on my brain. :-P
