inode is still recommended for Solaris.  namei is recommended in all other
cases, and generally is the only possible method.

build from source.

Solaris can use either, so yes, clarification is needed.  I'm fairly sure
you don't need the custom fsck if you use namei.

The source for this is in DocBook in the OpenAFS CVS head, and patches are
certainly welcome.
