Dear developers,

The next release of EMBOSS will contain some small pre-created index files
and databases (for taxonomy/ontology/etc). There is therefore now an
additional step to perform after you checkout the latest source from
CVS (as it is inappropriate to hold such files within CVS).

1) cd to the EMBOSS top level directory (the one containing the main
   configure.in file)

2) rsync -av rsync://emboss.open-bio.org/EMBOSS/ .

Then just "autoreconf -fi; ./configure" as usual.

For those unfamiliar with rsync, it will only download files if either
you have not already got them or they need updating.
