The 1.2.13 RPMs from openafs.org will not build on x86_64. A few slight changes 
are needed to get it to work.

Here is our version of the 1.2.13 RPMs; you can compare the spec file inside 
with the original one from openafs.org to see what I changed.



The binary RPMs from openafs.org won't work on x86_64, because they were 
compiled for i386. You can use the 1.2.13 binary RPMs I built for x86_64 here:
