Yes, I have. The openafs sources are the same (and they do build on
i686/i586). The build hosts are also OK, and the error shows up on all
of them.

There are of course more than just kernel changes in Fedora 10 - there
are many updates to other packages that may have caused this, maybe by
poluting /usr/include. Have you tried building on a recently updated

Perhaps it isn't the kernel changes that bite openafs on x86_64, and I
wish Fedora would keep the last kernel-devel around for me to try to
rebuild openafs on the the previous kernel to see whether it is the
kernel change or the rest of the environment. :/
