[CM] CM build problem

I just built CM for the first time, from the CVS sources (the head 
branch), as documented here: 
<http://pinhead.music.uiuc.edu/~hkt/cm/doc/install.html>. I'm using Mac 
OS X 10.3.7, with the fink distribution of GTK2.

First off, the CVS command is incorrect on OS X (at least). Step 3:

$ cvs checkout -P cm

actually has to be:

$ cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/commonmusic 
checkout -P cm

I'm not certain that all this is necessary - I use subversion instead 
of CVS whenever possible - but this is what the mailman cvs doc says to 
do here: <http://sourceforge.net/cvs/?group_id=103>.

During the build process, I found that I had to rename the GTK2 FFI 
database directory from "gtk" to "gtk2", since building CM complained 
that it couldn't find "gtk2".

I got the GTK interface from 

Was this correct, or did I miss something?
