Your log message didn't say why it conflicts. I assume it is for the
bin/ftp command (and man page too).
I think the ftp from kth-krb4 should always be prefixed, because tnftp's
(or lukemftp's) bin/ftp is essential for even using pkgsrc. So then on
platforms other than NetBSD, kth-krb4 can never be installed (and others
depending on it, like xdm-krb4).
Then for other commands (like su and telnet), Johnny C. Lam suggested to
me a few days ago about adding a build option to the mit-krb5 package. His
suggestion was for a KRB5_PREFIX_CMDS setting. But maybe it can be
extended for Kerberos 4 or 5. Using his idea ...
MIT_KRB5_TRANSFORM= s/^ftp/k&/ # always kftp
Maybe code like that could be for security/heimdal, security/kth-krb4, and
