I just checked out arts/1.5 and wanted to build it, but make -f Makefile.cvs 
fails with:
This Makefile is only for the CVS repository
This will be deleted before making the distribution

*** automake (GNU automake) 1.7.7 found.
*** Creating acinclude.m4
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/PACKAGES/KDE-SVN/arts'
make[2]: Nothing to be done for `acinclude.m4'.

      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation.
make[1]: *** [cvs] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2

What does it mean and how can I solve it ?

Best regards/Schöne Grüße
