Unfortunately I don't really create CVS tags except for real releases.
The goal is that the HEAD of the CVS archives is _ALWAYS_ valid and
buildable; I never commit code unless I think it works.  So, if
something breaks please let me know.

The test failure was a bug in the test; I just committed a fix for
that.  It passes 100% for me (on Debian GNU/Linux) right now.

This build failure is almost certainly due to problems caused by the
Savannah crack.  The way we used to handle downloading these files broke
when the site was "cleaned up".

The code at HEAD right now should be good.  I haven't run my full test
suite on it (valgrind/other ports/etc.) but I think it's OK.
