Re: pkg/45284: native Kerberos on Solaris (again)

Again: My question is: Why is this defined at all in this package?

security/mit-krb5 is v1.8 in pkgsrc. The Kerberos implementation in Solaris 10 is v1.4 (at least that's the version string, internally it has been patched probably to something in between). The actual version of the implementation used, as requested via e.g. PREFER_NATIVE, is determined dynamically in Why isn't it sufficient if a depending package defines the minimal version required with

DEPENDS+= mit-krb5>=1.8

and that's it? (BTW: I think that is what mit-krb5-appl tries to do by using CONFLICTS for this.)
