Growl Notifier for MacOS X

As of OpenAFS 1.5.73, a Growl notifier is included. You can find it in /Library/OpenAFS/Tools/tools/growlagent-openafs. It can be run as any user. The Growl software must be installed and running. Additionally, before any events will be received, you must, once each time AFS is started, run "sudo fs mariner localhost". Future versions will likely include persistent configuration for this.
