I suppose this is a matter of debate ... but IMHO, the "offending" libraries
are the AFS ones.

No.  This linking here happens at compile time, not run time (and I thought
that the AFS com_err library is static anyway).

I think you're missing the problem here; your problem was COMPILING, not
linking, and it was really a problem with the include files.  You could
probably massage the Makefile so the Kerberos include location is ahead
of the AFS one, and that might solve it.
