afsdump_scan and afsdump_extract are part of the OpenAFS source tree but =
not built by default. They build fine (there are make targets for them) =
and basically work. There's an improved version by jhutz in =
/afs/grand.central.org/software/dumpscan/dumpscan-1.2.tar.gz that was =
more difficult to build IIRC.
