Ok, that does look better.

I'm getting an error from autoconf on Debian and MinGW:

address@hidden autoreconf -i
doc/ installing `doc/mdate-sh'
doc/ installing `doc/texinfo.tex' variable `CLEAN_SOURCES' is defined but no program or library has `CLEAN' as canonical name (possible typo)

On Debian:

address@hidden autoconf --version
autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.67

On MinGW:
SABUL$ autoconf --version
autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.63

After that, 'make distcheck' fails on Debian:

make[3]: Entering directory 


cd ../../doc


mkdir: cannot create directory `.am17349': Permission denied

At this point, the working directory is
monotone.source-tree-cleanup-build/monotone-1.0dev/doc, which has
permissions dr-xr-xr-x, which is why the mkdir fails.

Apparently distcheck doesn't expect the makefile commands to write to
the source directory (which makes sense); it changes the source
directory permissions to a-w. But this is a standard autotool hack to
backup some tex files.

And it works in main.

Then immediately:

../../doc/monotone.texi: No such file or directory

This is from trying to run makeinfo. But that file exists!

Building not inside the distcheck directory works:

cd monotone.source-tree-cleanup-build/doc
make ../../monotone.source-tree-cleanup/doc/

On MinGW, I'm getting link errors in mtn.exe.  Clearly time to go to bed
and try again tomorrow ...
