The words “source tree” suggests the svn source code. Should I be
getting the tagged 0.9.1 from there rather than downloading the
release from <>?

I’d go with the trunk, but I’m concerned that there might be breaking
changes (that I haven’t kept up with) to what I’ve been working on.

I’ve tried this just now. The command line response was:

make: *** No rule to make target `dev'.  Stop.

Which again suggests to me I may not be installing from the ideal source?

Once you get on the couch getting off can be difficult :)

Okay off to #couchdb. I’ll post a reply if I figure out what the
stupid thing is I’ve done here.
