it's nearly "correct"   :-))

There are two possibilities to correct the AFS.xs source.  If you do
it "your way" you don't have to include the line

   #include <afs/com_err.h>

(see your patch here)

This include is not necessary if you change the other pieces.  All the
other changes are fine. 

I will prepare a more general patch during the day.  If you are
interested just let me know.

As I told you by private email, I will release a new version
containing all patches of the last couple of months the in the near
future anyway.
