[ic] CVS update question :(

I tried to follow IC using CVS, but everytime I do it it breaks
the installation. Can anyone of you "who know" please make a
statement what the best method of staying current is?

Currently, I am doing it this way:

- start: cvs -d  ... checkout interchange
- later: cd .../interchange ; cvs up

This makes for several messages what files are modified etc, but
if I then go to that directory and say eg. "make tardist", it
bails out everytime. If I instead try to say "configure", this
goes ill as well. I get all sorts of missing files or missing
targets in Makefiles. Here is an example:

$ make tardist
rm -rf interchange-4.5.6
/usr/local/bin/perl -I/usr/lib/perl5/5.005/i386-linux -I/usr/lib/perl5/5.005 -MExtUtils::Manifest=manicopy,maniread \
-e "manicopy(maniread(),'interchange-4.5.6', 'best');"
mkdir interchange-4.5.6
mkdir interchange-4.5.6/dist
mkdir interchange-4.5.6/dist/lib
mkdir interchange-4.5.6/dist/lib/UI
mkdir interchange-4.5.6/dist/lib/UI/pages
mkdir interchange-4.5.6/dist/lib/UI/pages/admin
mkdir interchange-4.5.6/lib
mkdir interchange-4.5.6/lib/Vend
mkdir interchange-4.5.6/dist/lib/UI/usertag
mkdir interchange-4.5.6/dist/construct
mkdir interchange-4.5.6/dist/construct/products
-e: dist/construct/products/NextDayAir.csv not found at -e line 1
Can't read dist/construct/products/NextDayAir.csv: No such file or directory
 at -e line 1
make: *** [distdir] Error 2

I have no problem updating other projects using CVS...

Best Regards,
