Thanks for the proposal!

If you have some spare time, then testing the CVS version is good.
But if you have little time, please keep it for the next tarball we
will put on alpha.

Just configure, make, make check.  What we need is the log of make
check when it fails.  As Pavel said, there are four tests which are
known to fail, disregard them.

A priori the log will tell us everything we need to know, but don't
worry: we'll write to you if needed :)
