I'm using Ubuntu and *strongly* prefer to use packages where possible.  
In this case, I was able to get the coda-provided source packages for 
lwp (and rpc2 and rvm) and get those compiled.  Everything worked with a 
few slight changes and I have it running in lpia now.

To start going off-thread (already?) I noticed that metadata is really 
really slow, like two minutes to do an ls -la of a directory with 64 
files in it but instantly once it's done the first time.  Is there any 
way to get that to have it load and remain cached on the local side?  
This makes it really difficult do to things like rsync since so much 
time is spent looking up files.
