What's wrong with using git instead, since that is the preferred repository? It's been ages since I've tried the CVS mirror, so I'm not entirely surprised if it is not working any more, although it might be nice to figure out why.

Anyway, then I got loads of files as expected. Not sure how to build
from them, I looked at the README and saw "See file `INSTALL' for
compilation and installation instructions." Hokay. Hmm. Where's the file

Look in HACKING instead for directions for building from VCS files. INSTALL won't exist, because it is a git symlink to the gnulib submodule, but since you are insisting on a CVS mirror checkout instead, which doesn't understand git symlinks, that explains why it doesn't exist for you.
