I've tried building on RedHat 7 with the source RPM.  The build mostly works,
but not completely.  The compiler segfaults while compiling kdump.c.  Since
make fails, rpm terminates.

Add "|| true" after the "make", and it turns out that enough is compiled to
build the binary rpm's.

Those rpm's work fine.  The only problem is that the /etc/rc.d/init.d/afs
start-up file is looking for kernel modules based on "uname -r", e.g.,
2.2.16-22smp, not just 2.2.16.  If you add appropriate symlinks, it works.
Or alternatively, change the afs startup script, like in the latest IBM AFS

Thanks for the pointing out that 1.0.1 is out and compiles!
