Then I'm baffled, since it's doing the same thing as the normal
lisp/Makefile. (VPATH? see below).

Yes, I already remarked on that, but I don't know what it means. (VPATH?)

The same as my own, save for the expected differences in
lisp,VPATH,srcdir variables.

I'm sorry, I don't know what's going on. The only suggestions I have

Try moving your CVS tree to eg /tmp/foo and building there, just in
case there is something about the path to your sources that is
confusing make for reasons I am failing to see.

In the test Makefile, increase ELCFILES to the full list from the
normal makefile, and see if it still works.

Throwing ideas at random, could it be something to do with VPATH? Try
adding the calc dir to VPATH at the top of Makefile, or deleting VPATH
altogether. But then I don't know why it works for everyone (?) else.

If all else fails, please try asking on help-make at gnu.org.

Help, anyone?
