[OpenAFS] a familiar problem compiling aklog?

Ken has suggested to me that changing include orders might fix the com_err 
problem with aklog.  I'm willing to futz with that, but it seems that 
there must be a known solution somewhere.  I don't think my systems are 
that non-standard, so I'd expect a lot of people to be bumping into this 
problem.  If they aren't then

1) people aren't running AFS on Linux but only on Solaris, etc.
2) people aren't compiling AFS on Linux from source but installing 
binaries (which is a bit of a crock--somebody's compiling the binaries 
initially somewhere, and they'd have the same problem)
3) people aren't using the openAFS 1.4.0 source but some earlier version 
which does not have the problem
4) openAFS installed base is small enough (in terms of deployed instances, 
not end-users) that just aren't that many people who've been down this 
road before.

OpenAFS is in a pretty small group of programs I've encountered that did 
not ./configure && make && make install without tweaking.
