I'm sure there is a way to get AFS login working besides PAM, but I 
don't know it.

You may want to do a search for Dropline GNOME.  It's a GNOME 
distribution for Slackware, that also adds PAM support to Slackware. 
You could potentially use the PAM & associated packages from Dropline.

Once you have PAM installed, the autoconf scripts for MIT Kerberos and 
OpenAFS should built their respective PAM modules.
