Thanks, I ran those ones (I had to do it as root) and the error disappeared.

Well, maybe we could add some notes to the INSTALL file for people wanting to
compile the sources from CVS: e.g. this is the procedure I currently use:

  # Update the CVS working copy
  cd $GRETL_CVS_ROOT        
  cvs update
  # (re)Create a build directory
  rm -rf build ; mkdir build
  # Configure, compile, install gretl
  cd build
  ../configure --enable-build-doc
  su -c 'make install'

  # Compile and install help files
  cd share
  su -c 'make help && make install_help'

  # Compile (Italian) documentation files
  cd doc/tex_it
  make gretl-guide-it.pdf
  make gretl-ref-it.pdf
