+PCL-CVS requires parts of the Elib library, version 1.0 or later. Elib
+can be downloaded from either the primary GNU FTP site at
+<URL:ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/emacs/>, or from any number of other
+mirror sites. Get Elib, and install it, before proceeding. It's
+probably also available from where you downloaded PCL-CVS, including

1. Edit the file `Makefile' to reflect the situation at your site.
The only things you have to change is the definition of `lispdir'

-Installation of the on-line manual.
- 1. Create the info file `pcl-cvs' from `pcl-cvs.texinfo' by typing
- `make info'. If you don't have the program `makeinfo' you can
- get it by anonymous ftp from e.g. `ftp.gnu.ai.mit.edu' as
- `pub/gnu/texinfo-2.14.tar.Z' (there might be a newer version
- there when you read this), or you could use the preformatted
- info file `pcl-cvs.info' that is included in the distribution
- (type `cp pcl-cvs.info pcl-cvs').
- 2. Move the info file `pcl-cvs' to your standard info directory.
- This might be called something like `/usr/gnu/emacs/info'.
- 3. Edit the file `dir' in the info directory and enter one line to
- contain a pointer to the info file `pcl-cvs'. The line can, for
- instance, look like this:
- * Pcl-cvs: (pcl-cvs). An Emacs front-end to CVS.
