Building sysutils/gnome-vfs fails with:

===> Creating toolchain wrappers for gnome-vfs-2.20.1
ERROR: db4 is not installed; can't buildlink files.
*** Error code 1

It says:

        * BDB185_DEFAULT = db4
        * BDB_DEFAULT = db4
        * FAM_DEFAULT = fam
        * KRB5_DEFAULT = heimdal
        * BDB_LIBS = -ldb4
        * BDB_TYPE = db4
        * KRB5_TYPE = heimda

So heimdal depends on db4.

I have installed:
heimdal-0.6.3nb3 which depends on db4>=4.2.52nb7

The databases/db4/ has:
BUILDLINK_API_DEPENDS.db4+=     db4>=4.6.21

The security/heimdal/ has:
BUILDLINK_API_DEPENDS.heimdal+= heimdal>=0.4e

(I am using USE_ABI_DEPENDS=NO.)

Because my heimdal is good enough, the db4 is not buildlinked.

I have had this problem with different packages at least six times over the
past six months. Others have reported similar problems.

I have posted suggestions on how to solve it for other packages. But
I won't suggest it here ... hoping that someone will have a better
correct fix for this.
