Essentially, this means that you're building a kernel newer than the  
one we've got a module available for on OpenAFS.org. Delays in us  
making modules available generally occur because we're reliant on  
CentOS producing packages for us to build against, because the build  
machine is tied up building new releases, or because the final copying  
step is manual, and hasn't been performed recently.

Generally, patience. More specifically, donations of RHEL entitlements  
would allow us to build directly against RHEL binaries thus avoiding  
the CentOS delay; access to additional 64 bit hardware would allow us  
to prevent the nightly update builds from being blocked by new release  
builds; and prodding Derrick generally fixes the copying step.

I note:
