After successfully compiling and installing the tarball:

    http://wam.inrialpes.fr/software/amaya/amaya-fullsrc-9.52.tgz

which I think dates from 30 August, I was also able to compile the
latest source code from the CVS.

I followed the instructions:

  http://www.w3.org/Amaya/User/cvs.html
  http://www.w3.org/Amaya/User/Autoconf.html

This amounted to:

Create a new directory xxx/

Copy from the tarball these directories:

 Mesa/
 freetype/
 libwww/
 redland/
 wxWidgets/

 cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@dev.w3.org:/sources/public login
  (Password anonymous)

Create the Amaya directory with latest source code:

 cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@dev.w3.org:/sources/public -z3 checkout Amaya

 cd Amaya
 mkdir build-dir
 cd build-dir

 ../configure --with-wx
 make

Simply copying the new binary (build-dir/bin/amaya) to the location of
the tarball binary (/usr/local/Amaya-9.52/wx/bin/amaya) caused some
problems - it would crash when I tried to use Edit > Preferences.  So I
went back to the tarball build directory and used:

  make uninstall

and then went to the new cvs build-dir and gave:

  make install

Then there were no problems with Edit > Preferences.

I was delighted to find a new option!
