Weird, it failed the with the same errors I was getting using the XFS
make: *** No rule to make target
`/datacomp/emacs21-21.1/src/../lisp/register.elc', needed by `../etc/DOC'.
make: Leaving directory `/datacomp/emacs21-21.1/src'
make: *** [src] Error 2
make: Leaving directory `/datacomp/emacs21-21.1'
make: *** [debian/stamp-build] Error 2
I've been unpacking the source fresh for each try.
What seems to be causing this build error is that the dumped emacs
binary is missing. I scrolled back in the make output, and saw
messages indicating that the dump had been successfully done to the
files src/emacs-21.1 and src/emacs, and that src/temacs had been
deleted. But when I look in src/, temacs is still there, and there is
no sign of emacs-21.1 and emacs, but temacs is still there.
This is jolly strange. Could the very presence of LVM be affecting
XFS, even though the filesystem is on a simple partition?
