Re: ABS Client Library (fwd)

Rather than build against Michael's version of openafs, it might be handy if we could address this issue in UMCE Linux.

I forgot one issue:  there is a known problem when using the
installed openafs afsrpc library on umce linux. the configure
script should catch this issue and exit, but that doesn't result
in a working library. the workarounds are

a) if on an afs client, use my install of openafs-1.3.82

b) build your own copy of openafs-1.[23].*.

note: the issue is particular to the build of openafs-1.2.11 installed
on umce linux. it does not seem be an issue with openafs-1.2.11 in

an example of using approach (a) is
   ./configure \

--with-afs=/afs/umich.edu/user/w/a/walrus/i386_linux24/pkg/ openafs-1.3.82a \
