I'm in the process of figuring it out myself...  CVS failed to build
tho, so I'm waiting a day or so and gonna redo the checkout and see what
happens. Get an error in 'make install'
Don't specifically remember what the error was however, but I do have it
documented (on an ext3 partition which isn't availible right now).  I'll
update when I get it working.  Jerry, anything you find would be greatly
