Debian packages for the AFS Perl modules are available from:

    deb http://archives.eyrie.org/debian stable main

(unstable and testing also supported) for x86.  They're not available for
any other platform right now because right now building the AFS Perl
module requires linking non-PIC code into a shared library, which only
works properly on a few platforms (x86 being one of them).

In order to properly build the AFS Perl modules, we need PIC AFS
libraries, which is going to require a fair bit of work on the OpenAFS
