Nobody answered this, so I'm going to assume that nobody else is using
it. I consider this to be a good thing, because it means there's less
of a chance that my changes will break what other people are doing and I
already know my changes work for us.
At any rate, I created a dev/dave64 git branch that contains the changes
I made. I encourage you to test it if you're interested.
You'll need to specify --enable-afs and --enable-krb5afspts. If it
doesn't just find your AFS libraries and headers, you can use
--with-afs-libdir and --with-afs-incdir.
