Recently I came across an issue where 'make install' which was installing
software to AFS was taking *much* more time on a Solaris client than on
Linux client. The issue turned out to be a lack of optimization on VFS layer
in Solaris, and VOP_MKDIR in AFS isn't optimized for it either (on Linux it
doesn't have to be). This can be mitigated though by changing default
setting for AFS file server.
