Hi Matthew, 

Unfortunately, I still get the same error. After receiving your message,
I decided to get started with a clean cvs dir so I checkout everything.
I followed the following steps:
pmatos at euler cvs $ cvs -z3 -d
:pserver:anonymous at anoncvs.plt-scheme.org:/cvs checkout -r exp plt
pmatos at euler cvs $ mkdir plt-build
pmatos at euler cvs $ cd plt-build/
pmatos at euler plt-build $ ../plt/src/configure
pmatos at euler plt-build $ make
pmatos at euler plt-build $ make install
make install-normal
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/pmatos/projects/cvs/plt-build'
make copytree-stub
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/pmatos/projects/cvs/plt-build'
if [ ! -d /home/pmatos/plt-cvs ] ; then mkdir /home/pmatos/plt-cvs ; fi
cp -p -r ../plt/src/../collects /home/pmatos/plt-cvs/.
if [ normal-install = "normal-install" ] ; then cp -p -r
../plt/src/../bin /home/pmatos/plt-cvs/. ; fi
cp: cannot stat `../plt/src/../bin': No such file or directory
make[2]: *** [copytree] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/pmatos/projects/cvs/plt-build'
make[1]: *** [install-normal] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/pmatos/projects/cvs/plt-build'
make: *** [install] Error 2


Best regards,

Paulo Matos

                So, he wrote it all in Lisp!
