About a week ago, I said:

Perhaps it is Vader-style evil, after all. Today I've had the "intense
pleasure" of spending about three hours trying to understand why was I
able to do a MinGW build on one computer and GNU make ab-so-lu-te-ly
refused to work on another, identically set-up machine... till it
finally dawned on my that I had forgotten the "cvs update -kb"
incantation on nt/ (I don't usually read nt/INSTALL because I'm quite
familiar with its contents).

Great. Just great.
