Problem (and solution) building from CVS

I ran into problems building from the CVS tree earlier today. I checked
out the GDB tree using:

  cvs -d co gdb

Building failed, with a warning that Tcl definitions could not be found.

The problem is the gdb/gdbtk sub-directory. This directory does not
appear in the GIT download (even though that's mirrored from CVS).
Delete this directory from the CVS download and everything builds just

So it looks like some admin surgery may be needed to remove the
gdb/gdbtk directory from the CVS tree.


(thanks to Phil Muldoon for pointing me at the GIT alternative)
