Some more details: The `make' error message is appended below; as far
as I can tell, these are the first files that make would access from
srcdir, the others are from the build directory.  I have shutdown
Coda, server and client (both on same machine), and removed the kernel
module, with the same result.  Coda 5.3.6 and (updated and built
today) 5.3.7, Linux 2.2.10.

I'm pretty sure that mv'ing the directory made the difference, as I
had successfully built using --srcdir before changing the top
directory's name (/coda/Projects/XEmacs/21.2-HEAD).
