Kerberos provides a means of verifying the identities of principals, (e.g.,
a workstation user or a network server) on an open (unprotected) network.
This is accomplished without relying on authentication by the host operating
system, without basing trust on host addresses, without requiring physical
security of all the hosts on the network, and under the assumption that
packets traveling along the network can be read, modified, and inserted at

port provides /opt/local/lib/libkrb5.dylib
/opt/local/lib/libkrb5.dylib is provided by: heimdal

heimdal, in turn, is required by gnome-vfs.
