Yes, you should be able to build the package without any AFS libraries or
dependencies at all.  It can use its own embedded implementation of the
kafs layer on Linux.  That's how I build it for Debian.

It doesn't do anything unless AFS is installed and working on the system,
so I don't know what Fedora's take will be on that, but building it
shouldn't be an issue.
