There's no default.

Well, that means you overrode KRB5_IMPL.  I said earlier that when it
was equal to "heimdal" the package didn't configure.  So seeing this
override, I expect it to fail the same way.

Yet apparently it didn't fail for you.

If it failed to configure in a clean jail but builds outside of jail,
that means there's an unlisted dependency for the port that you happened
to have installed, somehow.  So it works by chance, and not guaranteed
to be repeatable.

Is there a technical problem just letting it build with mit?
