I think IRIX and possibly AIX are the only ones that lose there among
platforms that we still support.  Linux, Solaris, and HP-UX should all use
PAM (HP-UX PAM is weird, but I believe pam-krb5 and pam-afs-session will
both work around its deficiencies successfully), and of course PAM is the
right option for the *BSD systems (and Mac OS X and Windows are their own

I have been told that pam-afs-session compiles and works on AIX as of a
few versions ago, but pam-krb5 doesn't.  Having no access to an AIX system
(and feeling fairly happy about that), I don't know any more details.
