Thank you for your answer. It still doesn't work for me, even after
enabling "automatically allow signed...". I must be missing something.
What certificate authority are the OpenAFS builds signed with? Do I 
need to fiddle with certificate trust settings?

This is a fresh installation of Snow Leopard, by the way: zeroed out the
hard disk, installed from DVD, added Rosetta and Xcode from said DVD, 
ran softwareupdate, installed OpenAFS 1.6.0pre7; nothing else.
