Hello Prasad,

OpenAFS 1.8.x introduced those two shared object libraries. When not installing
from packages you'll need to run ldconfig or set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH. Since
you've copied the files to /usr/afsws/lib, you can create a ldconfig configuration
file to let it know where to find them. For example,

    $ cat /etc/ld.so.conf.d/openafs.conf 

or perphaps better, install them to a standard location recognized by ldconfig.

Best regards,
