Thank you, your binaries work in 64 bit mode after clearing the cache.

I was pretty sure I always cleared the cache in my previous tests, but
it appears I did not do so every time, since the other known working
binaries I have do also work with a cleared cache.

On the other hand, I can confirm that the problem still exists with the
1.4.0 release (even with a cleared cache).

I have also tested the 1.3.79 release and it works in 64 bit mode:
 % isainfo
 amd64 i386
 % uname -srvm
 SunOS 5.10 Generic_118844-08 i86pc
 % pwd
 % what /usr/vice/etc/afsd|grep 'OpenAFS '
         OpenAFS 1.3.79 built  2005-11-08

According to
Kris Kasner saw the problem on 1.3.81 too.

Since the problem does not not seem to be in newer Solaris 10 kernel
releases, it may then be due to a change in OpenAFS 1.3.80 or 1.3.81.
