Hello, everybody,

I want to install emacs in my MontaVista environment, so I downloaded
the Cygwin sources for it (I succeeded in installing rxvt in the same

I unpack it and there are two files, a build and installation script, and 
complete sources as tar.gz.

However, when I run the script, I always get the error 

./emacs-21.3.50.install: line 3252: 
emacs-21.3.50-2.new/emacs-el/setup.hint: No such file or directory

I get an extra directory 'emacs-21.3.50-2.new', containing a file
'emacs-21.3.50-2-src.tar.bz2' and a file 'setup.hint'. The tar.bz2
file again contains a tar.gz file and an install script with the
same names as in the original package.

Any experiences and advice in this area ?
