dyld is similar to ld on linux systems. It links dynamic libraries
into programs at runtime. The error you are seeing is that a library
being linked to cannot be found.

And that would be your problem. If a library linked to an application
is removed, you are hosed. Somehow, you deleted your Kerberos
framework, and now apps that depend on it will not start.

Keychain also links to the Kerberos framework.

Fix permissions won't help when there is nothing in the directory.

Probably no one else has tried deleting their Kerberos framework. :)

Find someone with a largish Firewire or USB 2.0 harddrive, use Carbon
Copy Cloner to backup the files you want to save, and re-install.
Alternatively, you could poke around the OS X install DVD and see if
you can figure out which Installer package installs the Kerberos
framework and extract the files using the *bom tools (lsbom, bom,
mkbom) and pax. Sorry about that. Good luck getting it fixed. If you
have other questions, feel free to ask.
