it means you don't have CrappleTalk compiled into your kernel. but the
good news is you don't need it.  just rewrite the initscript to not
start atalkd and use the following configuration for afpd:

/etc/netatalk/afpd.conf:
hostname   -tcp  -noddp -nosetpassword -nouservol -noguest

-noddp turns off appletalk support and makes it tcp/ip only.  since
macos 8 and later it can handle tcp/ip appleshare servers fine.  no
need for crufty appletalk.
