Compiling the CVS head

Dear All

we are making progress. One of the big problems is indeed the mssing set of 
*-devel.rpm . It takes quite some time to find out which they in fact are. So 
if someone has a good idea of how to handle (and improve) this it would make 
life much easier.
generates this:

autoheader: `' is unchanged
Running automake --gnu  ...
Running autoconf ... error: do not use LIBOBJS directly, use AC_LIBOBJ (see 
section `AC_LIBOBJ vs. LIBOBJS'
**Error**: autoconf failed.
root(eno,gnucash)# autoconf

as can be seen autoconf seems to go through if started manually.
configure is next, it goes through without problems now, finishing with:

-- config.status: creating gnucash-config
config.status: creating config.h
config.status: config.h is unchanged
config.status: executing depfiles commands
config.status: executing default-1 commands
config.status: executing default-2 commands
config.status: executing default commands

looks ok.

Now its:

Making all in src
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/local/src/gnucash/src'
Making all in doc
make[3]: Entering directory `/usr/local/src/gnucash/src/doc'
Making all in design
make[4]: Entering directory `/usr/local/src/gnucash/src/doc/design'
cd . \
  && /bin/sh /usr/local/src/gnucash/missing --run makeinfo   \
       `echo gnucash-design.texinfo | sed 's,.*/,,'`
gnucash-design.texinfo:9: @include `version.texi': No such file or directory.
makeinfo: Removing output file 
`/usr/local/src/gnucash/src/doc/design/' due to errors; 
use --force to preserve.
make[4]: *** [] Error 1
make[4]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/gnucash/src/doc/design'
make[3]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/gnucash/src/doc'
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/gnucash/src'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/gnucash'
make: *** [all] Error 2

Is there something missing in the CVS tree?
