Now checked out a fresh tree from cvs.  It bootstrapped successfully.
Then in the arch tree: failed with "Lisp nesting exceeds
max-lisp-eval-depth" as before.

Then I renamed '{arch}' to '.arch' (mv '{arch}' .arch).  After this,
"make bootstrap" ran successfully in with the sources from the arch
repository.  Therefore, I think the guess from your previous mail
probably is correct:

Do your compile problems disappear too after renaming the {arch}

Bye, Reiner.
