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, 
make install.

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.
