[OpenAFS] /afs permissions

  The default afsd options (for AIX machines at least) end up
  producing a /afs directory that is mode 777.  This causes
  sshd to refuse to use public key files stored in .ssh
  directories somewhere under /afs.

You need "StrictModes no" in sshd_config.

  My question is, where does the mode 777 come from?

As far as I know, there is nothing special about the mode on /afs.  You
could probably have your admin chmod it.
