I too amy not a real Mac person. You may need the MacOS xcode code development
packaged, I had it installed before I looked at OpenAFS.

Actually I found it rather easy to build OpenAFS on MacOS 10.4, as it is
based on unix based.

./configure \
       --enable-largefile-fileserver \

make all
make dest
make packages

You will end up with a package at:
