Now that I look into it, the pkg message when installing warns:

heimdal-7.1.0_1 uses a new database format which is incompatible
with Heimdal in the base system and heimdal-1.5.3_6 or prior.

Please read 20161112 in /usr/ports/UPDATING carefully to upgrade
your database.

And there is a copious upgrade manual:

That's what is basically in the manual.

It keeps a fairly recent version of Heimdal in the ports collection,
but does not upgrade Heimdal in the base system for some reason.
