I can't say anything about this one.

These are from my chartrans stuff.  You can ignore those messages.
(I'll make them less verbose after some more assurance that things are
building correctly on other people's machines.)  The `mv' command is
just trying to make a backup copy of some files in src/chrtrans before
overwriting them, this is also something that is probably not needed
when everything is working correctly.  The `mv' fails because there is
no earlier version of the files in question, but the error is ignored
as it should be.

Definitions for MAX_CHARSETS and MAX_CHARSETSP are necessary for
compiling with -DEXP_CHARTRANS, and -DEXP_CHARTRANS is currently set in
SITE_DEFS and SITE_LYDEFS of the package's (and Makefile,
but that wouldn't be used).

The userdefs.h should contain #define's for those two symbols.  (Maybe
I should move that somewhere else?)

That may all be because somehow MAX_CHARSETS was not defined.
