Ok good. In the future, if you submit main.log files to us, make sure they are from a clean build attempt and do not contain the "skipping" lines.

That's correct. My point was that most users who run Snow Leopard do so on 64-bit Macs, and that running Snow Leopard on a 32-bit Mac like yours is therefore unusual, and may cause you to experience some issues other Snow Leopard users don't see. Now that 64-bit computers are ubiquitous, we're finding some ports have problems compiling on 32-bit computers like yours, because the developers didn't test that configuration. However, I would guess that this particular problem is not because of that.
>> More likely, perhaps, is that I see you're using llvm-gcc-4.2, which is the default MacPorts compiler with Xcode 4 on Snow Leopard. Is that the version of Xcode you're using? On Snow Leopard, the recommended version of Xcode is 3.2.6.

Yes, Xcode 4.2 is the last version of Xcode for Snow Leopard, but Xcode 4.x for Snow Leopard was not free; you had to pay a developer program membership fee to Apple to get access to those versions. Since most MacPorts users don't do that, Xcode 4.x for Snow Leopard is not as well tested as Xcode 3.2.6, which is the last free version for Snow Leopard.
> To downgrade to 3.2.6 will it be as simple as dumping the /Developer directory, downloading Xcode 3.2.6 and trying kerberos5 again? Or will I need to uninstall all ports and start over?
Follow the Xcode uninstallation instructions provided by Apple in the About Xcode.pdf file. There's a script your run in the terminal, which knows what all needs to be deleted. Then, since you're going to downgrade, you restart the computer before reinstalling the older Xcode.
You don't need to reinstall MacPorts or all ports. There may be one or two ports that have baked knowledge of your Xcode version into their files; if so, those ports would need to be rebuilt.
