compile_et/libcom_err in heimdal/kth-krb (and base) supports more features
(among others, threadsafeness) in the .et file that e2fsprogs
compile_et/libcom_err have started to support (at least partly).

I would guess its derived from MIT. KTH one is a diffrent implementation.

They are all the same, so it doesn't matter which one you choose. All the
error-codes are the same, and the API, but not the ABI. Choose one and only
one, mixing (w/o renameing) will cause you headaches.
