[Gnu-arch-users] config-manager update

I've found a few early brown-bag bugs. So, here's a small prod on an
update ;]. config-manager is now self-hosting. That is, you can get the
ready-to build directory tree using it.

a c++ compiler.
CVS client or libgetopt++ already installed.

HOWTO bootstrap:
1) register the relevant tla archives
   tla register-archive address@hidden  \
   tla register-archive address@hidden \

2) Grab the config-manager source
  tla get address@hidden/config-manager--devo \

3) get the libgetopt++ source
  cd config-manager
  cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden/cvs/cygwin-apps \
co -d libgetopt libgetopt++

4) bootstrap both source trees:
  sh ./ 
  cd libgetopt
  sh ./

5) configure and build (in or out of the tree).
  cd ..
  ./configure && make

6) now you have 'cm'. try cm --help, cm cat config, cm build config etc.

With cm (patch-4 or above), you can be a little easier:
1) register the tla archives.
2) get the config:
  tla get address@hidden/dists--robertc-software--1.0 \
3) build the config
  cm build robertc-software/configs/config-manager/devel

4) bootstrap and build as before.
