I'm not sure how to go about installing cwm from a cvs working  
directory. So far I've tried the following:

1) Updated my working directory so I'm not trying with old bits.

[Daniel-Krechs-Computer:~/2000/10/swap] eikeon% cvs update -Pd


2) Then tried the canonical spelling for installing a Python package,  
namely (also the way indicated in the getting started section of the  
README):

[Daniel-Krechs-Computer:~/2000/10/swap] eikeon% /usr/local/bin/ 
python2.4 setup.py install
swap dir: /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.4/lib/ 
python2.4/site-packages/swap
running install
running build
running build_py
error: package directory 'swap' does not exist


3) Then I tried following the advice given in the comment at the top  
of setup.py "# DO NOT run this file directly! Use make dist_tarball  
instead."3_

[Daniel-Krechs-Computer:~/2000/10/swap] eikeon% make dist_tarball
make: *** No rule to make target `dist_tarball'.  Stop.


4) Then I looked at the Makefile to see if the target got renamed and  
found a target called install and tried that:

[Daniel-Krechs-Computer:~/2000/10/swap] eikeon% make install
./setup.py install
swap dir: /System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.3/ 
lib/python2.3/site-packages/swap
running install
running build
running build_py
error: package directory 'swap' does not exist
make: *** [install] Error 1
