Mmm, work

Mail I mailed to the flightgear-devel list:

I'm trying to build from current CVS with cygwin, but I'm getting this [1]
error from make: 

Making all in EXTRA_DIST 
cd: can't cd to EXTRA_DIST 
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1 


I can change the bad line in the Makefile (73, "SUBDIRS = \") easily enough,
but that only gets me: 

Making all in src 
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/wolf/cvs/FlightGear/src' 
Makefile:283: *** missing separator. Stop. 
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/wolf/cvs/FlightGear/src' 
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1 


283 in src/Makefile, which I think it's saying, starts a strange construction: 

if ENABLE_OLD_WEATHER 
else 
endif 


Did Norman Vine figure out the problem? Is that error a symptom of some deeper
haunting issue? I made sure to keep automake 2.13 and autoconf 1.4-4 and have
started from a fresh copy of the CVS code several times.
