it seems that the automake (./configure) got messed up little a bit from 
2.0.7 to 2.0.8.
If you look in the generated makefile (main dir) for CVSGUI_SUBDIR you 
will find this is commented out or not set. set it to CVSGUI_SUBDIR = 
cvsgui, so
it will be included in the SUBDIRS list below that. You can do that with 
the zlib and lockserver, too.
Also, there are unresolved references in the Makefile of the src subdir 
(libltdl.a), since the src subdir is parsed before the libltdl subdir. 
Change that by placing the src subdir at the end of the SUBDIR list in the 
Makefile, and after a "make clean" it should compile ("make"). Remember 
that a "make distclean", "./configure"
will overwrite your changes!
Anyway, the docs won't be created since configure doesn't create a 
Makefile in the docs subdir.. However, this worked up to 2.0.8, and I 
don't think the docs changed dramatically in the meantime.

Hopefully Tony will fix this? (Hint, hint) ;-)

        Thema:  [cvsnt] CVSNT does not build under Linux

I'm trying to set up a cvsnt client under Linux to talk to cvsnt on a
Win2K box running sserver. When I try to build the sources, make dies

source='zlib.c' object='zlib.o' libtool=no \
depfile='.deps/zlib.Po' tmpdepfile='.deps/zlib.TPo' \
depmode=gcc3 /bin/sh ../depcomp \
gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I.. -I. -I../lib -I../diff -I../cvsgui
-g -O2 -c `test -f 'zlib.c' || echo './'`zlib.c
make[3]: *** No rule to make target `../cvsgui/libcvsgui.a', needed by
`cvs'.  Stop.
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/jtwang/cvsnt-2.0.8/src'
make[2]: *** [all] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/jtwang/cvsnt-2.0.8/src'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/jtwang/cvsnt-2.0.8'
make: *** [all] Error 2
[root at be-pfbh203-2 cvsnt-2.0.8]#

Any ideas?
