A question about something that is not clear in the README.

It says I need either a Heimdahl library or a binary like aklog
to get AFS tokens.  But then further down in the README it talks
about using Heimdahl or an OpenAFS library for the AFS system call
layer.  What is the relationship between these?  Does the module
1) obtain a token and then 2) pass it in to the AFS client via
the AFS system call layer?

It builds under HPUX with only minor changes.  Mainly, you have
to link using ld when you make shared libraries under HPUX 11, and
compile with +z to get the compiler to emit PIC.  Once I have tested
it I will send you the patches for HPUX.
