I downloaded the CVS folders and files to an external drive on a Windows
machine. I have StarBand, a satellite ISP that only works under Windoze,
not Linux :-(

I used the external drive to move the files between my Windoze and Linux
machines. (No other way to do it.) So, I just copied the whole CVS
directory structure from my external drive (which works with Linux, too)
to the "home" directory on my RedHat machine. Question--should I have put
the CVS folders somewhere else? Keeping in mind your statement that "The
build is heavily dependent on the location of files since some of the code
is used in multiple places," where then do they actually belong?

As to renaming the Gnu make files, I renamed them make because I didn't
think gcc would recognise the make command in any other form. Sorry. I'm
not well-experienced at building from source. How should I use the
GNUmakefile(s)--just type "make" anyway?

Now I'm going to sound like a real dummy here, but this last question of
yours leaves me mumbling "duhhh!" to myself. Of what "configuration" do
you speak? I outlined the exact procedure I used in my original post, but
I'm just can't understand what you're asking me here.

I HAVE built WindowMaker from source, and installed it successfully, but
I'm lost this time around.

If you would please indulge me, once again, I sure could use some further
advice (other than "quit now while you're ahead.")
