This was very helpful, and resolved the problems with autoconf and
automake. I was then missing the files:


in the top PET directory, which I hackily copied across from an old PET build,
and off we went ... until we tripped up on s-xml:

;;; Loading "/nlptools/delphin/lkb-src/src/systems/s-xml.system"

;      - Source file not found. Not compiling file
;        "/nlptools/delphin/lkb-src/src/s-xml/src/package.lisp"
;      - Source file /nlptools/delphin/lkb-src/src/s-xml/src/package.lisp not
;        found, not loading.Source file "/nlptools/delphin/lkb-src/src/s-xml/src/package.lisp" do not exist.

which doesn't seem to be checked in to CVS (Ben?). This is after having
specified --without-xml in configure, but I guess this option isn't passed as
far as the interface with the LKB.

These work beautifully on one server which is running dapper (finally, after
recently giving up on debian unstable), but the main machine we are interested
in getting it running on is running RedHat ASP, as Ubuntu doesn't support the
hardware in question.
