I do see that the current variant I have installed of cyrus-sasl2 is +kerberos, so I am not sure why this apparent conflict didn't show up before.  At the moment it doesn't seem that I have the kerberos5 port installed.  Perhaps the 2.1.23_3 version of cyrus-sasl2 used a different kerberos and now it is trying to use the macports kerberos?

FYI, there is a ticket about this.
