Without more information, we can't tell you anything more than "the kerberos5 port failed during the build phase", which is the only information that the message in the subject line conveys.

I'm not having any trouble reaching or other MacPorts sites from Austin or Munich or right now, but of course network problems are often region-specific so there may be a network problem somewhere between you and Apple's data center in Cupertino.

No; MacPorts confines its network activities to the fetch phase. Since the port failed for you during the build phase, that indicates a build problem, not a network problem.

If you're still not able to get to our site to file a ticket, you could upload the main.log file somewhere, then send us a link to it here. (Attaching large files directly to mailing list messages should be avoided.)
