[arch-general] heimdal dependency preventing upgrade? (it's not even installed? )

  Trying to update tonight and I ran into a problem where the install failed due
to a heimdal dependency. heimdal isn't even installed. The output looked like:

00:48 nirvana:~> pmsu -w

  The odd part is I've been using this save desktop for 2 years as we work
toward the next 3.14 TDE release coming shortly. Whey would heimdal suddenly
appear as a dependency when it was never complained about as a dependency before?

  Any thoughts of where to look? Could this be triggered by udev deletion? How?
What say the experts?
