FreeBSD can't install PostgreSQL 8.0

I previously had PostgreSQL 7.4 installed, I removed it and trying to install 8.0. Although I deinstalled the 7.4 client and server when I tried installing version 8.0 it complained that postgresql74-client is still installed. I manually removed the pgsql user and the directory (maybe I shouldn't have done this). I manually did it because I went to the ports and deinstalled and it didn't complained about anything, but the directories were still there.

when I tried to installing postgresql80-client it gives me output below:

bruno# make install clean
===>   postgresql-client-8.0.1 depends on executable: gmake - found
===>   postgresql-client-8.0.1 depends on shared library: krb5.3 - found
===>   postgresql-client-8.0.1 depends on shared library: intl - found
===>  Configuring for postgresql-client-8.0.1
MIT's and Heimdal Kerberos are mutually exclusive.
Please choose one or the other.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/databases/postgresql80-client.

I'm stuck and don't want to reinstall the OS, I'm sure there's some easy way around. I should mention also, I'm got Apache with PHP install, and not sure if because if the PostgreSQL extension for PHP might be using the 7.4 client which might be causing any problems.

make clean
rm -rf /var/db/ports/postgresql*

make install clean

Or you may use portupgrade port to do this in correct way.
Since you deleted all database data, there islittle or no reason to be careful at all.
