Run autogen.sh and it will create the needed files for you. Most
developers don't keep the generated files in CVS.
./autogen.sh followed by any options you would pass to CVS. Then make,
One of the things some people ran into was a libtool problem where the
shared libraries (plugins) would not end in .so and would not be loaded.
I upgraded to the latest libtool and auto tools in an attempt to solve
this problem. That is why I want people to actually build it. I do not
see this problem with Slackware 9.1, or a mix of debian stable/unstable.
