You just don't do it like that, because:
$ ldd /usr/lib/news/bin/auth/passwd/auth_krb5 | grep com_err
libcom_err.so.2 => /lib/libcom_err.so.2 (0xb7f2f000)
If you don't want to depend on libcomerr2, don't depend on it. It's not
because libkrb5-3 already depends on it that it's a proper thing to
remove the dependency that way. What happens when libkrb5-3 depends
on libcomerr3 ?
