Kind of related: I've been working on an RPM spec file for IBM AFS.  With
RedHat 7, there are problems with some binaries that link against ncurses,
like "scout" and "fms".  I worked around this by breaking up the package into
a number of RPMs, like "client", "server", "development", and "monitor" (for
scout, etc.).  This works OK since my client systems don't really need
monitoring tools.

Anyway, it wouldn't surprise me that building OpenAFS on RedHat 6.2 would
yield RPMs with the same trouble (dependency on back-level ncurses) that
IBM AFS has.

Has anyone compiled OpenAFS on RedHat 7 with the 2.2.16 kernel?  RedHat seems
to have done, um, strange things to the kernel header files.
