I'm not sure what you mean by remove libafs.

If I bring down afs then remove the afs file in the / directory then restart
afs, will there be any problems?

members somehow created an AFS file in the / directory in place of the afs
directory.  AFS is still running ok but I cannot cd into any of the
directories because it thinks /afs does not exist.  I cannot get rid of the
afs file created because the system still thinks that afs is still mounted
there.  Has anything like this ever happened to anyone out there?  If I
bring down the services, then get rid of the afs file and recreate /afs
directory, will I lose all my other mount points?  Any advice?
