You've taken Tramp from the CVS. According to the INSTALL, this case
you need to perform "autoconf" as first step, in order to get an
up-to-date configure script.

And that's excactly what happened:

configure script was produced for Tramp 2.0.31

Oops. Prefix should be "blah". Have you called this one with the
"--prefix=blah" option?

Same for lispdir.

autoconf has been called (from make) automatically for Tramp 2.0.33
due to dependencies. But it was too late; your configure script did
run already, and it didn't take into account recent changes.

If you rerun "./configure; make" everything should be fine now. But
very likely you've figured it out yourself already ...

Best regards, Michael.
