It's not important, but I thought I'd run kadb_check on a current 
kaserver.DB0 (yes, I'm planning to switch to K5 before I retire...) and 
it complains about bad entries, and the -entries switch returns "funny 

I've run it on various Centos 6 systems, with openafs 1.6.1 to 1.6.11, 
pulling the file kaserver.DB0 from various places.  I generally compile 
my own openafs, but I extracted a kadb_check binary from the release rpm.  Always the same.

I copied kaserver.DB0 to an old AIX system, and its kadb_check works fine.

mentions "/2/ fix kadb_check to produce correct output.  Should match on 
little and big-endian machines."

Should I just forget about the whole thing and go home?
