Ok, so I checked out the r0-6-stable branch of scsh (cvs ... co -r
r0-6-stable scsh) and followed the instructions in CVS_README. This
works fine until the "make install" phase, where I get errors when the
documentation is installed, because no .dvi/.ps/.pdf versions of the
documentation exist at this stage, but the Makefile tries to install
them. Maybe CVS_README could contain a note about that. (And while
we're talking about CVS_README, it could be a good idea to change
references to the old name of the module [scsh-0.6] by references to
its new name, but that's really minor).
Anyway, after working around these problems I was able to install scsh
in a staging directory first, then move it to its final destination,
and the bug mentioned in my previous mail didn't appear. The man page
also refers to the correct (final) paths.
So I would say that this version of scsh is suitable for packaging,
but as soon as you have a beta tar archive, I'll do a full test on my
Mac with an updated version of the Fink package, to be really 100%
