"0) If there is no configure script (you are fetching
from CVS, for instance), try running automake, aclocal,
and autoconf in order to generate the configure script."

Those directions are too simple. I found that many
files were missing after trying those directions, and I
had to copy them from a snapshot.

It would be helpful if the generated files were added
to the repository.

    Fixed in CVS. The generated files, should not, however, be
    in CVS, as that creates a *lot* of churn if developers are
    working with different autotools versions and so are
    constantly creating different files. They are of course in
    the releases...

    Thanks,
