	I had this (or a very similar) problem with all of the application 
Makefiles.  Specifically, the distributed `app`/src/ files.  I 
don't have automake, so I was using rather than, from 
which is generated by automake.

	The problem is that header file dependencies are expressed as 
"Library/src/HTxxx.h" rather than "../../Library/src/HTxxx.h".  I got around 
this by putting a symbolic link in each affected directory:

	ksh from top-level directory:

	$ for app in ComLine LineMode Listen MiniServ PICS-client Robot
	> do
	>	ln -s ../../Library $app/src/Library
	> done
	$ ln -s ../../PICS-client LineMode/src/PICS-client

	Quick and dirty, but effective.
