afaapps-2.6-1 is broken

That's one of the problem I had when trying to run afacli script from 
cron. /usr/sbin/afacli is a script in the 2.6-1 release. At the end, it 
calls afacli.bin without passing any argument, loosing everything you 
passed to afacli on the command line in the first place ...

I changed my scripts to use afacli.bin if it exists as a workaround. I 
prefer that than having hand-modified version of afaapps RPMs.
