So, apparently no one is actually paying attention here.  The original
poster quoted the following error message:

> In file included from /root/openafs-1.4.0/include/afs/afs_sysnames.h:25,

He's building a kernel module, or trying to.  The headers in /usr/include
are for use by user-mode code only; that tree will not and must not be
searched while building kernel code.

The problem here is that the "sys" symlink in the module build directory
(in this case, /root/openafs-1.4.0/src/libafs/MODLOAD-
points somewhere useless.  This is probably because the required kernel
source package is not installed.
