I was able to get pam-afs-session 2.2 into Fedora and EPEL. They
should be hitting updates-testing and epel-testing soon.

Given what we've discussed about the dependencies available in Fedora,
is there any way to avoid the requirement to specify the path to
aklog? Eg.

    pam-afs-session =3D {
        program =3D /usr/bin/aklog
