	<para>
	This chapter explains how to build &e17; manually. The Enlightenment
	Project is hosted by <ulink url="http://www.sourceforge.net">Sourceforge</ulink>,
	the project website is therefore
	<ulink url="http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/enlightenment">http://www.sf.net/projects/enlightenment</ulink>.
	Since you're reading this document, your probably know this already.
	CVS is used for version control, refer to the Sourceforge documentation
	for details about using CVS.
      </para>
      <para>
	<caution>
	  <title>Make sure you know what you're doing!</title>
	  <para>
	    Building e17 from CVS code is not trivial. Expect problems.
	    You're using development code, so do not expect the software
	    to work. Things can and with all likelihood will break.
	    Be sure you know how to handle the tools you need for the
	    build.
	  </para>
	  <para>
	    Experience from the mailing lists shows that way too many
	    people try using CVS without the proper skills. We will try
	    to give help, but by explaining how to build &e17; we lose
	    time we'd otherwise spend coding, so try to solve issues
	    yourselves first.
	  </para>
	</caution>
      </para>

	An incomplete tree of the current CVS contents is shown below.

	The modules you absolutely need to get &e17; running are marked
	with an asterisk. The next thing you need to know is the build
	sequence. A working sequence is the following:

	<orderedlist>
	  <listitem>
	    <para>Imlib2</para>
	  </listitem>
	  <listitem>
	    <para>Imlib2 Loaders</para>
	  </listitem>
	  <listitem>
	    <para>Evas</para>
	  </listitem>
	  <listitem>
	    <para>Ebits</para>
	  </listitem>
	  <listitem>
	    <para>Edb</para>
	  </listitem>
	  <listitem>
	    <para>Efsd</para>
	  </listitem>
	  <listitem>
	    <para>E 17</para>
	  </listitem>
	</orderedlist>
	    
	Some of the modules have other dependencies, you need:

	<itemizedlist mark="opencircle">
	  <listitem>
	    <para>For Imlib2, you need a few graphics libraries. [FIXME]</para>
	  </listitem>
	  <listitem>
	    <para>For Efsd, you need libxml2 from
	      (<ulink url="http://xmlsoft.org/">XMLSoft</ulink>) and fam from
	      (<ulink url="http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/enlightenment/fam-oss-2.6.4-NULL-fix.tar.gz">Version 2.6.4</ulink> or a later version)
	    </para>
	  </listitem>
	</itemizedlist>

	There's no real reason to build those from source, it's a lot easier
	to just install the packages of your distribution. Do not forget to
	install the development packages as well, or necessary C header files
	won't be available during the build.
      </para>
      <para>
	To build, you need recent versions of the following GNU tools:

	<itemizedlist mark="opencircle">
	  <listitem>
	    <para><command>autoconf</command> 2.13 and <command>automake</command> 1.4 <emphasis>OR</emphasis></para>
	  </listitem>
	  <listitem>
	    <para><command>autoconf</command> 2.50+ and <command>automake</command> 1.5</para>
	  </listitem>
	  <listitem>
	    <para><command>gettext</command> 0.10.39 or newer</para>
	  </listitem>
	  <listitem>
	    <para><command>libtool</command> 1.4 or newer</para>
	  </listitem>
	</itemizedlist>

	Other combinations of <command>automake</command> and
	<command>autoconf</command> may work, but are more
	prone to errors.
