Ok, I updated the instructions a bit.
You should do the "make all", "make install", or "make all install" from
the f-spot directory. Not the src directory.

No need to run it as root (sudo), since you specified a target directory
which is writable by your user.

F-Spot can be run after you have done a "make all", by changing
directory to src, and then give the command "./f-spot --uninstalled"
But it will need some library files which it tries to find from the
installation directory, so you will have to have done at least one "make

My target directory's lib files are the following:

Can you perhaps send the console commands and output when you try and
run the CVS version? (including how you start f-spot)
