New description:

 The MIT Kerberos installation currently overwrites a library
 (/usr/lib/libcom_err.{so,a}) that is previously installed by
 the E2fsprogs package. This should probably be fixed somehow. The MIT
 package
 has a switch to use the system-installed version of libcom_err, however,
 the
 source code needs to be fixed to actually use it with the current
 E2fsprogs
 package.

 There may come a day when a package expects to link to the E2fsprogs
 library
 and will not be able to do so if MIT Kerberos is installed.

 It very well may be that MIT Kerberos also installs a libss library which
 is
 a conflict as well. However, I have not looked into it that deeply.

Comment:

 Added parameters to the configure command to use the system-installed
 versions of the conflicting programs/libraries.
