Well, yes and no.  That was my mistake, but it does work on more
recent NetBSD's because USE_KERBEROS is set by  What
I forgot was that variable is not used by 1.5 or prior.  That said,
the easiest solution would be to either conditionally set it in
the pkgsrc mk files, or to use a solution similar to the one that
you proposed.

It may make sense to have the pkgsrc mk files initialise the value
of USE_KERBEROS from KERBEROS which is the 1.5 way of doing things.

Also, this should default to true, I think.  Which would imply
something more like:

.if !defined(USE_KERBEROS) || (${USE_KERBEROS} != "no")
