Yeah.  I thought so too.  I gather that, if the .svn is present, is 
assumes you're building from scn, but otherwaise, you're building from a 
source tarball, which isn't quite just source;  it contains some 
files that are build using obsure, hard-to-get tools.  At least, they 
think they're not likely to be in everyone's repertoire, perhaps from 
platform limitations.

I hope it still ignores the _MTN diractory!

Exactly.  That's why I want to use monotone for this.  Thanks.
