For fun, I spun this build.  It's a non-GAR recipe that Phil wrote.
Compilation is fine but I don't have stagepkg in my PATH and didn't
poke around for it.  It's likely a fairly easy update if you're

The noted discrepancy in the database isn't actually a discrepancy.
The binaries in that package do depend on libkrb4, so they're still in
the table that tracks that.  Unfortunately, nothing provides that
library any longer so there is a breakage.

If you want/need this update, I'd suggest turning it into a GAR recipe
and updating it to use the latest krb5 libs.
