fakeka isn't built by default in MIT k5, and it isn't included with the 
Red Hat krb5 packages. What I was trying to do was put together a set of 
OpenAFS RPMs that would provide everything you'd need to test out or 
upgrade an AFS server environment.

My thinking was that people could quickly set up a krb5 server using the 
krb5 packages from Red Hat, and then add the OpenAFS server stuff on top 
of that from the RPMs.

Generally, I assume that most people who are running a Red Hat system 
would prefer to use the MIT k5 stuff that comes with Red Hat instead of 
building their own (either MIT or Heimdal). If they build their own stuff, 
they wouldn't be able to use the OpenAFS RPMs anyway. (since the RPM 
packages are dynamically linked against the system krb5 libraries)

The best rationale for dropping fakeka that I can think of is to 
discourage people from using it. (if the official policy of OpenAFS is to 
encourage krb5-only authentication)
