Honestly, I'm not sure if anyone has published a document on how
to do this.  Basically, you:
	1) Install Kerberos
	2) Install AFS
	3) Build (or install) "aklog" and "asetkey", which are the
	   tools used to obtain AFS tokens or install an AFS KeyFile
	   (for AFS Servers) from Kerberos tickets.
	4) Continue as normal; use kinit+aklog instead of klog to get
	   Kerberos Tickets + AFS Tokens
