Hm, nice, but based on the CVS checkout instructions and list of modules
to install, they seem to be using CVS HEAD which is (and has been for a
long time) almost guaranteed to be broken until further notice :(

If one wants to install a working validator, it is strongly recommended
to use the distribution tarballs, or at least the latest release tag
(currently validator-0_6_7-release) or the "stable" branch
(validator-0_6_0-branch) from CVS.

More info:

validator-0_6_7-release in CVS instructions, not 0_6_6)
