I'm sorry to keep sending this; but I'm just at my wits end. I've been trying to build the CVS source tarball (The one available on the downloads page) and it isn't building at all. :< I'm trying to install it on a Compaq Alpha running Tru64 UNIX ver 5.1a.

I noticed that when I ran the make, it warned me that it could not find the suffix file but it seemed to complete normally otherwise.

But when I try to do the make install ; when I get to the contrib directory I get the following error:
Making install in doc
/bin/sh ../mkinstalldirs /usr/local/info
 .././install-sh -c -m 644 ./ /usr/local/info/

Does anyone have any advice as to what can I do to get around this problem?

Note that the Alpha systems I'm installing CVS onto do not need to hold any repositories; they primarily just need to be able to checkout and commit changes and do diffs with code located in a central repository on a Linux box.

(Also in the previous mention, I mentionned something about seeing 'autoheader' missing.... I've since installed the Automake stuff also from the webpage and it seems to have taken on that system even though it also complained about missing Suffix files. Since then, after doing a make distclean on the CVS code and trying again, I haven't noticed the autoheader warning any more

At the same time, in his response to my first mention of this problem, Larry Jones mentionned a "" script. I checked through the CVS tarball and I could not find it; does anyone know where it is in case I need it some time later? (Saves me from sending another message at least; not that that would stop me. *G*)
