I don't know much about this. This seems to be a compatibility things with
former way. I always tweak the Makefile to work in my setup here and don't
care about the paths that much.

Oh, is the German one still wrong. Sorry for that. I'll fix that ASAP.

The problem is that you need to use _CVS_ versions of all mintlib, gemlib
and cflib (gemlib is not needed AFAICR, but I would recommend it anyway).

There was a cruel register owerwrite bug in cflib and there are more
bugfixes in mintlib IIRC (I don't realle know how far is it from the
official RPM as I'm using always the CVS version).
