I'll second the thanks, as I've run into this same issue many times
(and usually ended up just reverting to MIT kerberos, which I know better).

It is relatively recent that there was a newer actual heimdal release
that FreeBSD could even consider upgrading to. Given how importing
a development snapshot worked for Debian, I don't blame FreeBSD for
choosing to wait for official releases.
There is some effort underway to modernize the Kerberos offerings for
FreeBSD, though there is not much concrete to show for it, yet.
