Oh, I didn't realize they still had the 5.1 client available.  Yes, that
approach will work for the time being if that comes with the *.afs binary.

Note, though, that the current version of Tivoli is 5.5, and I'm fairly
sure that later versions no longer include AFS support.  We've been told
by IBM that they do not support it and eventually it will break.
