Thanks to everyone's replies.  Summary of my expierence so far:

Next came the reply suggesting that arla would surely work,
regardless of whether the port is broken or not.  I went to arla's
web page and found a freebsd 4.6 and higher binary package (I'm
running 4.7-STABLE).

For people running current, that probably won't work.

For people running current, note that Love <lha@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
recently responded to a thread on the freebsd-current mailing
list, where he is working on updates to arla for 5.0.  The thread
is under the subject:
    Re: ARLA 0.35.11 on FreeBSD 5.0-RC1
and was around December 17th - 18th

In one of his messages, he noted:

   a Known problem on fbsd5.0RC1 is that arla uses the pioctl
   syscall (339) but the built in libkafs in freebsd uses 210
   (lkmsys).  [You should] set AFS_SYSCALL=339 in your environment
   (including arlad's).


   MD5 (arla-0.36pre5.tar.gz) = 48a9955df0e69fac5a323a48b29aec66

   (untested) binaries releases for random platforms might be found in


   Feedback is appreciated.

I haven't had a chance to do anything with that, as I've been busy
shoveling snow for my christmas/new-years break...
