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?

Thanks. The strange thing is that I already have openssl installed, and I have not run into this problem before. So I guess this is related, but not identical.
It does sound like there are a number of ports that handle kerberos differently and that is causing some port conflicts.
