I shoudl have said "therein lies MY challenge".  I'm not going to submit a
port of OpenAFS to the FreeBSD ports managers if it doesn't compile on
5.0-RELEASE, since that's all I use on my development machines.

For those who want to get OpenAFS into the ports collection for 4-x, by all
means go ahead.
