Sorry, but that's ridiculous.  Next you will tell us that invoking
"configure" and "make" from the shell prompt is ``rusty and broken'',
and is the reason for the fact that you expect the build to fail,
because it's all too easy to try to run "make" before "configure" or
misspell "make" as "Make".

Using CVS and not knowing about -d is like using GCC without knowing
what the -c switch does.
