Thanks for doing that.

Just to double check, where are you getting your QuickStartUnix
guide from?  (I think the copy on the website is not rebuild
automatically, and only the XML source in the git master branch gets
updated very often.)

But, e.g., http://doc.openafs.org/QuickStartUnix/HDRWQ50.html notes:

  The OpenAFS 1.8.x series stores the cell-wide shared keys in the
  file /usr/afs/etc/KeyFileExt, whereas the 1.6.x series uses a krb5
  keytab format file in /usr/afs/etc/rxkad.keytab. These instructions
  create both files, but populating the KeyFileExt file will only
  succeed using the version of asetkey from OpenAFS 1.8.x.
