I guess you are joking but I want to state this nevertheless:
The version from CVS should always build and indeed it does so almost
all of the time. If someone has trouble to build we ask you to pester
whoever might have broken the build (check the ChangeLog!). If there's
an obvious fix and you have CVS write access, please go ahead and
commit the change without waiting for approval. We can always do the
right fix later if yours turned out to be wrong.
