   System is: Slackware 12.2/libc 2.7/gcc4.2.4

   After building 5.8: 'configure && make'

   Decided next to run the test suite: 'make check >'

   And then: 'grep -i fail'

   Output was:

   FAIL: t030
   FAIL: t050
   FAIL: t602

Thanks for reporting this problem.  Could you please do:

$ cd .../rcs-5.8
$ make check VERBOSE=1 > check.log 2>&1
$ tar czf badness.tar.gz \
  config.log \
  check.log \

and file a bug report on savannah, attaching badness.tar.gz
(see <>)?

   Also a nit... has anyone um, looked at the documentation?

   Its rife with accented UTF-8 characters like '‘' that of course
   don't play nice (depending on locale I'm guessing) with some
   apps like 'less', 'vi', etc...

For viewing the README, etc, w/ less(1), you can:

$ alias uless='LESSCHARSET=utf-8 less'
$ uless README

I skimmed the less manpage for a way to autodetect UTF-8 from
the document itself, but nothing jumped out.

   The home page has'em as well: <>

This part is now fixed.

   Maybe I ought to stick with v5.7 for the time being?

If 5.7 is working for you, that sounds like a good idea.  On the
other hand, if you are adventurous, you can help improve things so
that the next release will be less problematic.
