I downloaded the latest snapshot of the openafs repository,
applied this patch, and:

export MAKE=/usr/local/bin/gmake
/configure --with-afs-sysname=i386_fbsd_50 --enable-transarc-paths
gmake install

I then added a few config files in /usr/vice/etc that I'm used
to seeing from installations on other platforms.  Is there an
/etc/rc-type file for what is supposed to happen next?

I copied /usr/vice/etc/libafs.ko to /boot/kernel, and typed:

kldload libafs.ko
/usr/local/sbin/afsd -stat 1200 -dcache 800 -daemons 3 -volumes 70

and the system panic'ed on me right after the AFS cache scan:

Versionstring: FreeBSD 5.2-CURRENT #0: Sun Mar  7 00:53:31 EST 2004
   root at santropez.netel.rpi.edu:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/Dual-Athlon2k
Panicstring: mtx_lock() of spin mutex (null) @ /usr/src/sys/kern/vfs_subr.c:19

This is on a dual-CPU system.  Might there be problems with that,
or did I just screw up the AFS startup?
