My binaries are the namei fileserver, not the inode one.  You only need 
to mess with the "afs" filesystem type for the inode fileserver.  So, 
you can probably just leave /sbin/mountall as-is.  And you probably 
don't need to mess with copying the afs fsck binary either.

Also, DO NOT set your vice partitions to the "afs" type.  You should 
leave them as ufs, (or try out zfs) and you can even keep logging turned 
on.  The namei fileserver shouldn't hose anything (the inode one WILL 

Note that I believe the Solaris binaries on openafs.org are indeed 
inode.  These are not compatible with the namei partition type and 
attempting to use them on maei partitions will result in much badness.
