Indeed. I build with MKKERBEROS=no (for various reasons) but I
recently discovered on one of my machines I'd forgotten to manually
prune the kerberos libs from /usr/lib... with the result that they
were years out of date and insecure and a bunch of pkgsrc packages
turned out to be linked to them.

Making postinstall handle build options isn't entirely trivial,
