build the source from CVS error

I would assume, that you fetched the RTEMS sources from CVS without 
running the "bootstrap" script on these sources. This bootstrap script 
prepaes some configuration files in the source tree.

I think the following steps will be needed:

1.) install the current autoconf/automake packages
2.) go to the top level directory of your source tree installation
3.) run bootstrap as "./bootstrap"
4.) go to lunch/try getting a BIG cup of coffee :-)

Afterwards, your source tree should contain the proper input files for 
the configuration process, so you can configure your build system and 
then run make to get your binaries.
