I think I got everything to build, but unit tests are failing.

Can you try:
make test

Just so that I can see what is failing? All of the hackerlab stuff worked for me. My quick guess is to make sure $HOME is set, but it should actually be set by the test script, since it uses a custom $HOME.

Also, this code needs you to build the custom versions of tar/diff/patch (which are in the archive, though I am still tweaking them right now). And have them in the appropriate place, and modify the ../configure stage.

I realize it is still quite a bit of work, but I'm trying to get the tests to pass on my machine, and then make it easier to install.

Also, I just realized I forgot to include one of the custom branches in the main config. Probably the easiest thing to do is to start from scratch:

export address@hidden
tla get $A/diffutils--pcomp diffutils
cd diffutils
./configure && make && make install

cd ..
tla get $A/tar--pcomp tar
cd tar
./configure && make && make install

cd ..
tla get $A/patch--pcomp patch
cd patch
./configure && make && make install

# You should now have pcdiff,pcdiff3,pctar,pcpatch in something like
# /usr/local/bin
# Should these be called pc-diff? hmm....

tla get $A/dists--pcomp--1.3.1 tla-pcomp
cd tla-pcomp
tla build-config config
cd src
mkdir =build
cd =build
../configure \
   --with-gnu-tar=pctar \
   --with-gnu-patch=pcpatch \
   --with-gnu-diff=pcdiff \
   --with-gnu-diff3=pcdiff3 \
make test
make install
cp =install/bin/tla /usr/local/bin/.

Or at least something along those lines. Remember, this is still a work in progress.
