Hello David,

--- snipp ---

Just commited the changes to make ufc-crypt vpath aware. But configure
has to be regenerated again...

>> I tried to build latest cvsnt on SuSE Linux 10.1 and it failed in

DS> Yep, different versions of automake is a pain.

DS> For the gentoo build only ufc-crypt is causing problems (and I work around it
DS> by explicitly doing make in ufc-crypt before calling make in the cvsnt root
DS> dir)... for all the other troublesome libs I rely on them being system
DS> installed instead of using the ones that come with cvsnt (which explains why
DS> I never had breakage before).

>> So I will doublecheck this tomorrow...

DS> Let me know how it goes...
