einfo "Tests do not run in sandbox, they need mit-krb5 to be already installed to test it."
I don't get this. I assume that, with the above output, it knows I initially had FEATURES=sandbox and that the same version wasn't yet installed. So I emerged it again with FEATURES=-sandbox, assuming the test suite would now be run. That's when I looked at the ebuild and found the above.
You could look at what other packages do, like imagemagick, to work around the install-before-test problem, and you could perhaps run the test suite regardless of FEATURES=sandbox and just warn that it might fail.
That work around predates me. I'll see what I can do. Thanks for the pointers.

Will also add a working test suite to mit-krb5-1.8 branch if/when there is a bump (patch is ready). Thanks again.
