I'm trying to install a cvs version of emacs -- but do not want it to

able to try out the cvs version a bit.

After looking around, it seemed as if the main things to do were a)
ensure that everything was configured for an install directory that
differs from the location of my existing installation; and b) give the
build a suffix so as to call it by name.

Here is what I tried:

cd /test
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:address@hidden:/sources/emacs co -d emacs-cvs-source emacs
cd /emacs-cvs-installation
/test/emacs-cvs-source/configure --prefix=/test/emacs-cvs-installation 
make bootstrap
make install

This seems to complete without error, but the following generates an

bash: emacs-from-cvs: command not found

What am I doing wrong?
Is /test/emacs-cvs-installation in your $PATH?
Anyway, try
