some observations on compiling the latest release....

1) no need to set CLASSPATH anymore, file.make uses a relative classpath

2) ../org/w3c/jigadm/events/makefile has a typo, should be

TOP=../../../../..

instead of

TOP=../../../../../..

3) with the line

JAVAC=javac -classpath $(TOP)/classes:$$CLASSPATH

in file.make, MAKE won't work. change to 

JAVAC=javac -classpath $(TOP)/classes

and everything seems to work fine. don't know why this makes a difference,
since CLASSPATH is vacuous, but it does.


hope this stops others swearing quite as much as i did this afternoon

cheers,

jim
