Hi Coy;
	If I want to find out where a package puts it's files I use an 
application called OSX Package Manager from osxgnu.org it is quite old 
but still worked when I used it on my test 10.4 box it can make, 
install and delete packages.
	Much of the stuff installed by openafs is either in /Library/OpenAFS 
or /private/var/db/openafs. There is also startup items in 
Library/StartupItems and some links and executables in /usr/bin and 
/usr/sbin plus there is also a package receipt in /Library/Receipts.
	I think if you want to upgrade the package you just install the new 
one over the top of the existing  one, I am not aware of a need to 
remove the old one first:-). I have used OSPM to remove this and other 
packages and it seems to do the job.
