This is what you get on a NetBSD box when you try to do most any
command without arla running and without using -local (with KeyFile
# bos status afs-5
Bad system call(core dumped)

Loading the arla kernel module makes it much happier.  klist doesn't
hang for me, I just don't get tokens.  I have seen klist -T hang
when it can't find the CellServDB on NetBSD.
