Does it install to the filesystem successfully? If so, can you start  
the daemon manually? There isn't any specific project policy on  
keywording ebuilds with init scripts, but I can say that there are  
ebuilds in the tree that are keyworded ~ppc-macos (again, not stable)  
even though they have init scripts which obviously do not work yet.  
This wasn't my decision, but I can agree partly with the rationale -  
init script functionality is a problem with baselayout and hopefully  
can be solved once and for all in baselayout. Additionally, packages  
with init scripts may be completely functional otherwise, so I can  
see a decision not to support init scripts on Gentoo for OS X  
currently as a decision to remove consideration of said init scripts  
from our evaluation of packages.

This is an open source project without a lead. If you don't feel like  
looking into this package, then don't. Nobody is telling you what to  
do or not to do. Personally, I don't use openAFS, so I wouldn't know  
what to do with it anyways.

Basically to recap: if the package works as expected without init  
script functionality, then based on our previous behavior, I would be  
in favor of keywording it ~ppc-macos. I would not support moving it  
to ppc-macos until we have support for init scripts. That being said,  
I don't consider adding support for this package a priority until a  
user asks for such support.

Just my 2 cents...
