This is because its library dependencies are all a bit of a mess - it mixes PIC and non-PIC libraries, as well as mingling pthread and LWP code in the same object. It just about gets away with this on 32 bit platforms, but this doesn't work on 64bit, and no longer works with OpenAFS 1.6.0.

Aha! Ok, I'll try this another time with 1.6.1 instead. I now see that 
the _pic.a files are indeed included in the authlibs-devel package. I 
had missed that.
