That's actually a quite reasonable idea (though some people who'd want
to use libkopenafs as part of another project might not care for it)

It's conceivable your Heimdal is old enough to not work with the afs
syscall replacement we use, but the PAG handling is kernel-internal,
so either it will work or not.
