That's why on the SUSE build-service, there are two package-families :
"openafs" is FHS (hopefully, mostly, fully ? I haven't checked that.)
"openafs-transarc" uses the transarc-pathes.
rpms from one of those family conflicts with those of the other one.

I've had some communication with the SUSE-packagers and I think they 
would be very open to that. And I could volunteer to do some of the work 
on the SuSE side.
