I think that I ran into this error myself.

I believe that  I temporarily fixed it by  hacking in the force option
for the makefile for the manual directory (I think I might have had to
get make to ignore errors i.e.

from info:
**
   To ignore errors in a command line, write a `-' at the beginning of
the line's text (after the initial tab).  The `-' is discarded before
the command is passed to the shell for execution.

   For example,

     clean:
             -rm -f *.o
**
)

But I would ask if the current version is  the one that the developers
are using.

I thought I had seen a thread (or a note in the INSTALL docs) that 2.x
was supported. And you won't want a broken or incompatible libc.


HTH

(I  haven't reported my  problem previously as I   have been trying to
work out what is wrong with my development environment... apologies if
that might have saved you trouble.)
