php5 +apache installation workaround

ah, right you are.

looks like "-macosx" only works when its at the beginning of the  
variant list. (is that right???)

for a quick fix, simply adding "--with-kerberos=/usr" (or just "-- 
with-kerberos") unconditionally to configure.args works fine.

using "--with-kerberos=${prefix}" seems like the better way -- this  
also works fine (with added kerberos5 port dependency)

is there a reason to prefer kerb from /usr over the port when  
building against apple apache?
