Actually, there are some slightly simpler changes than this. I landed a =
patch on master a while back that added all of the necessary symbols to =
libafsauthent to link perl-AFS against that, and fixed perl-AFS so that =
it would work against master.

Those changes just need pulled up to 1.6, and perl-AFS modified so that =
it can handle the interface changes in 1.6. I was hoping to get that =
work done for 1.6.2, but haven't had the time so far.
