Well I didn't try with the source rpm, I tried with the tar file and the co=
nfigure and make commands.   I just downloaded and installed the openafs-1.=
6.11-1.src.rpm source RPM.  It didn't put it into /usr/src but into /root/r=
pmbuild.  I tried running the openafs-buildall.sh and received this.

[root@spcfrksasol01 SOURCES]# ./openafs-buildall.sh
I don't know how to build for kernel 3.10.0-123.8.1.el7.x86_64

The configure with openafs 6.10 which I had downloaded some months ago woul=
d work with one summary at the end I wasn't sure of, and the make would get=
 a lot of warnings and errors about flock.
Not sure at what point I got to those errors as I tried installing flex, bi=
son, byacc, etc to resolve various errors without much luck.  At this point=
 bison and flex are still installed.

config.status: executing default commands

configure summary

LIB_curses :                -lncurses


A couple of the make warning and error messages.

I also haven't had problems building for RHEL7 from 1.6.11 SRPM - RHELS7 pr=
eferred due to xfs support which we use ( for xfs support on RHELS6 there i=
s An additional charge)
