comms/kermit on Mac OSX

Apparently, there is a difference between how the kermit makefile handles options for NetBSD and for Mac OS X.  For NetBSD there are four make targets that allow setting kerberos and ssl options independently of each other.   In contrast, for Mac OS X there are only two targets that require either both or neither of kerberos and ssl.  The file assumes the former for all cases and allows the two to be set independently.  Setting only ssl, however, fails on Mac OS X.  In addition, at least on Yosemite (10.10.x), selecting both kerberos and ssl also fails.  (Certain kerberos functions are marked as deprecated.)  Thus, in my hands it seems that the only viable option is to select neither kerberos nor ssl.

Can anyone else verify this?

If this is correct, I feel that the following patch will prevent the interpretation of either option for Mac OS X.  Suggestions?
