I keep thinking that this looks like a portable (non platform-dependent)
bootstrapping issue.

FWIW I run a combined (db+fs) server on 9.0 IA64. Haven't seen any of
these problems, and have been running on FreeBSD since 6.something. I've,
OTOH, got my cell running 6-7 years now, so have a lot of the
bootstrapping out of the way.

I do not, either, run the port, but am building manually. My ./configure:=

=2E/configure \
	--enable-namei-fileserver \
	--enable-largefile-filserver \
	--disable-pam \
	--enable-supergroups \
	--with-krb5-config=3D/usr/heimdal/bin/krb5-config \
	--disable-kernel-module \
	--prefix=3D/usr/local/openafs161 \
	--sysconfdir=3D/etc \

What I did may or may not be relevant, but I'd just like to state two thing=

* The FreeBSD port is being actively used. Do we need some resources to fac=
  developement? (I'm thinking build slave)=20

* The FreeBSD platform, having ZFS, is IMNSHO an excellent choice for a fil=
e server.=20

How far ahead is the client code on FreeBSD?=20
