As you say, it has files generated by autotools in a cvs (anonymous), so
when checking out there is a clash.

The software is at, mainly edm
& semper-7.0beta. They are both old, not so great but I still use them
every year or so for teaching, and there are a few others who use them.
They are updated via cvs (yes, they are that old). I am updating them
currently (for a class) so they may be changing.

At least for edm most of the problems are with fftw-2.1.5 ( which is also somewhat old. (Updating
the code to use more recent fftw would be a pain.)
