renew should use fsid -a, not aklog

Description

renew fails miserably for people whose homedirs aren't in the AFS cell. You can make the argument that they need to create ~/.xlog files, but that kind of sucks.

We should change the renew alias so that it uses fsid -a if available, and falls back to aklog.

kcr also suggests:

aklog athena.mit.edu -p $HOME

This broke renew for local users (e.g. debathena-standard), which usually have an empty attachtab.

When fixing this, keep in mind that ‘renew’ needs to satisfy three kinds of users:

  • $HOME ∈ /afs/athena.mit.edu
  • $HOME ∈ /afs − /afs/athena.mit.edu
  • $HOME ∉ /afs
