kafs.h (and libkafs) is provided by Heimdal, but not MIT Kerberos (which 
is what Redhat use).  What you have found is a minor bug in session.c.

The #include <kafs.h> should have been inside an #ifdef AFS.  (Or 
possibly USE_AFS, it's still under discussion).  Should be fixed in the 
next day or two.

     Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
