I maintain a working copy of Gnome from cvs head, which I update and

It appears that new headers etc get downloaded ok, but often code
changes don't get made in "update" mode, resulting in compile errors -
if I checkout the whole module again I get a clean copy which compiles ok.
my checkout command :-
cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden/cvs/gnome checkout nautilus

Do you check out over top of an existing copy or do you rm -rf; cvs co?

my update command :-
cvs -d : pserver:address@hidden/cvs/gnome update -dP nautilus

but this doesn't always pick up latest changes from head. ???
thanks for any pointers

It should.   Some  build systems re-write  config  files and some sources.  When you do your cvs up, do you notice any  cvs markers like M or C.  This would indicate modified sources (presumabljy modified by the build).  If so, try to corrolate the modified or conflicting files with the build errors.

Another thing to try is: make clean; make distclean; ./configure; make (this is generic.  I have never looked at the gnome build)
