This is a red herring.  Smell the fish.

Yes.  Most likely if you check out what "configure" said, you'll find
*every* kernel test case failed.  Fix that and your rlim problem will
go away.  Unfortunate, "config.log" probably won't tell you what's

I've got a version of the kernel configuration logic that's smart
enough to see if it can build a guaranteed success test case for the
kernel before it tests actual kernel features, and works much harder in
any case to log what failed.  I don't know when that might show up for
real in openafs.  If you want to try hacking this in yourself, you
might want to look at
