The kernel module needs to copied to /lib/modules/`uname
-a`/kernel/fs/afs/libafs.ko from /usr/afs/etc (put there by the compile
Then run a depmod from directory /lib/modules/`uname -a`
Check with an insmod libafs; lsmod libafs; if there are no errors, you're
good to go.

That's because it just builds the kernel module unless you tell it not
to. The problem is that:

You told it not to. Leave that flag off of configure and then it will
build the kernel module.
