Hi John,
           First thanks for the comments. Actually I build from CVS.
For CVS checkouts, rasterman recommended to use ./autogen.sh instead
of ./configure!

There's also some tarballs/snapshot releases which exist on


which are pretty recent. The reason why they exist now is that many
people complained that they were no releases from the Enlightenment
development team and that was annoying.

For the ones on the above website, ./configure should be used. What we
use is pretty much dictated by the lead developers.

I use CVS checkouts because they are more up-to-date. Of course I
ensure that everything's working correctly before I make rpm releases.
And I also have some testers at hand. ;-) The snapshots on the website
mentionned are only released once a month and if you want to do some
development work with the EFL, well you would be pretty much behind!

When I used the snapshot releases, I got lots of emails from people
telling me to upgrade since they couldn't try the latest xxx EFL apps
on E. So I decided to be more on the cutting edge.

With kind regards,
