I'm using CentOS 5, a RHEL 5 rebuild. I just dowdnloaded the source rpm 
and did

# rpmbuild --rebuild openafs-1.4.4-rhel4.2.src.rpm --define 'osvers 

Then the rpms can be found in e.g. /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/x86_64/. Works 
fine for me. There are also prebuild rpms available in the internet, e.g.: 

Hope that helps,
