Compatibility symlinks with Transarc/IBM AFS paths (/usr/afsws)
The KAserver kpasswd program
The Krb5 programs, aklog, asetkey, etc.

Because that's all I have/care about, and nobody has asked me to

Unclear.. I've /tried/ to make the SPEC file general enough that
you could rebuild it on any RPM based system.. So you SHOULD be
able to rebuild the code on SuSE. You DEFINITELY need to rebuild
the kernel module. You MAY need to rebuild the user-space.
