The existing 1.2.13 OpenAFS RPM works fine for the client, with a few 
changes. We are using it on RHEL3 for x86_64 without any problems.

Here is the build that we use (binary and source RPMs):


Note that the pam_afs module is missing from this, because it doesn't 
build for x86_64 in OpenAFS 1.2. (it builds properly in the 1.3 tree)

I don't know if the server will work on x86_64, if you build using OpenAFS 
1.2. You could quickly give it a try with the above binary packages, 
though; else you may need to build from the 1.3 tree.
