I tried in a clean chroot of EL5/beta2/x86_64 and the build fails at a
completely different spot:

compile_et.o: In function `yyerror':
/var/tmp/delme/openafs-1.4.2/src/comerr/compile_et.c:419: undefined referen=
ce to `yylineno'

Probably some parts are missing still, although flex/bison/byacc were
on board.

The packages use a couple of args more to configure, c.f.
http://dl.atrpms.net/all/openafs.spec, e.g. it looks more like

=2E/configure --build=3Di686-redhat-linux-gnu --host=3Di686-redhat-linux-gn=
u --target=3Di686-redhat-linux-gnu --program-prefix=3D --prefix=3D/usr --ex=
ec-prefix=3D/usr --bindir=3D/usr/bin --sbindir=3D/usr/sbin --sysconfdir=3D/=
etc --datadir=3D/usr/share --includedir=3D/usr/include --libdir=3D/usr/lib =
--libexecdir=3D/usr/libexec --localstatedir=3D/var --sharedstatedir=3D/usr/=
com --mandir=3D/usr/share/man --infodir=3D/usr/share/info --with-afs-sysnam=
e=3Di386_linux26 --with-linux-kernel-headers=3D/build/kernels/el5-i386/2.6.=
18-1.2747.el5-i686 --with-krb5-conf --enable-redhat-buildsys
make only_libafs

(cut from the logs to the i686 non-smp build). That's more or less the
only relevant differences.
