I have just tried to build from CVS (updated with the patches I've been
sending) using the procedure listed in the file INSTALL.
I noticed that the step ./ creates mkinstalldirs as a symbolic

Which automake version are you using? I suspect that different versions of automake deals with missing  files differently.

Moreover, in the ./configure step the xmltest step no longer fails (cf
previous emails in this list). Why this should be I don't know - there
is no record of anything relevant being changed. The make still fails in
the po directory, I get

And you haven't installed any libxml-dev package? My xmltest problems went away after installing libxml2-dev IIRC.

make[2]: Entering directory `/home/rshann/denemo-cvsBUILT/denemo/po'

make[3]: Entering directory `/home/rshann/denemo-cvsBUILT/denemo/po'
rm -f && : -c --statistics -o es.po
mv: cannot stat `': No such file or directory
make[3]: *** [] Error 1

I haven't seen this error before.

There is a warning in the ./configure log file
config.status:875: WARNING:  po/ seems to ignore the
--datarootdir setting

But I'm getting this warning, so it has probably nothing to do with the above error.

which may be relevant?

About the sourceforge pages, I couldn't agree more - most references to
denemo lead to sourceforge and it appears to be a nearly stalled
project. Nearly, but not quite, since some of the development discussion
has taken place there since the move to Savannah, adding to the
impression that sourceforge is the active denemo home.

Exactly. It was only by luck I happen to discover denemo on savannah.

My account on
sourceforge appears to have expired, so I can't do anything about this
(and I have to admit, I have not done any of that work in the past, so I
don't know what is involved).

Ok, but I hopefylly someone on this mailinglist still has access to the sourceforge pages and can update them. We'll just have to wait and see...
