Step one, get the source (Actually, I guess step one would be to delete 
the libraries you just copied in):

$ wget \

Two, build it.  You'll need at least rpm-build, flex, bison, and 
ncurses-devel installed.  rpmbuild *should* tell you what else you need, 
but that src.rpm doesn't have the full set of build pre-req's defined. 
(Someone ought to contribute a fixed spec to IBM):

$ rpmbuild --rebuild openafs-1.2.10-rh9.0.1.src.rpm

Three, install any packages which you need from the built result.
