If you've had a problem with the Makefile, a detailed bug report would
be appreciated.  Nobody else has reported a problem.

I do not recommend make install on BDI; run-in-place is available for
running EMC2 CVS on systems with existing EMC (including EMC2)

Thanks for mentioning that, Paul, the deb packages the EMC2 team are
building regularly from the EMC2 CVS have not been tested on BDI and
are not meant for use on BDI.  They are meant to make EMC2
installation and updating easy on Ubuntu 5.10.  Preliminary details,
for those interested, at http://timeguy.com/cradek/emc/ubuntu
