Just to follow-up on this thread, I was working offline with Ted and we've
sorted out his installation issues.  We built and installed OpenAFS on
his system.

Since this is 1.6.20 (not 1.8.0pre1) and Ted is using an AES enctype, the
correct thing to do was install service key directly as the file rxkad.keytab,
instead of running asetkey.  Ted is using traditional paths, so we created the
file /usr/afs/etc/rxkad.keytab

Once the rxkad.keytab was in place, the bossever was started without -noauth,
then authenticated bos commands worked. We were able to setup the cellname,
hosts, and superusers with bos as normal.
