1.4.15 included only security fixes, not platform support. The 1.4 tree
hasn't improved platform support in quite some time, so the client
kernel module won't build on newer Solaris. I can give you a patch for
this specific failure if you really want, but if you want to build on
newer Solaris, you should be building newer openafs (that is, 1.6).

If you don't care about the client, you can build with something like
'make dest_nolibafs', and it would be more likely to work.
