loginwindow.app provides a -LoginHook facility. See Apple's documentation:


Here you find an example (no AFS):


I don't know if it works when you run aklog in the LoginHook script. In the 
case that it works, it would give a token only via the graphical login. If 
you also want a token during a remote login this setup will not work.

Mac OS X "Jaguar" includes PAM. So we should be able to compile the PAM AFS 
modules for Mac OS X "Jaguar" and then have a authentication facility 
similiar to other Unixes.
