Thank You for the responses.  I had installed the Heimdal slackpkg from
SlackBuild.org for Slackware 13.37, but I took it off using 'removepkg'
after the first time the OpenAFS build failed.  I then installed
krb-1.7.1 using the slackpkg while troubleshooting the OpenAFS build.  I
had some directories in /usr/lib and /var labeled heimdal but I deleted
them and tried ./configure straight up without any switches.  The build
just failed again.  I might have to bork the whole system and start from

gcc  -O -I/usr/src/openafs-1.6.1a/src/config
-I/usr/src/openafs-1.6.1a/include -I. -I.  -I.. -DNINTERFACE
-I/usr/kerberos/include -c afscp_util.c
afscp_util.c: In function '_GetSecurityObject':
afscp_util.c:160:5: error: 'krb5_creds' has no member named 'keyblock'

It has been a number of years since I have used OpenAFS although, I have
lurked on this list since around 2000.  Now, I wish to test OpenAFS as
an alternative to applications like M$ Sharepoint.
Thank you for the help
