Um, if this is part of the process that I wrote down it'd be a mistake  
to imply that you can do a checkout over top of the source archive.

The source archive is a CVS distribution from a different repository  
than the dev version. The "-d etc." argument to CVS is telling it to go  
to a specific repository to get the source code. You can't update from  
a working copy taken from one repo to another directory in another  
repository.

So, blow away your ccl directory (sorry) and follow the instructions a  
little more pedantically. You do in fact need the binary distribution  
for bootstrapping and you need to check out the 0.14-dev repo's version  
of ccl (from scratch, not over top of what you have, if you ask me) and  
unpack the binary distro and the interface database into it, then try  
the build cycle again.

Let us (the list) know how it turns out please.
