Later, I want to try to compile the stable branch.  I get it with

cvs -z3 checkout -r GNUMERIC_0_56 -d gnumeric-stable-1.6 gnumeric

Is CVS smart enough to recognise I've already checked gnumeric out, and
only fetch the diffs between the latest repository of gnumeric and
release 0.56?  Or does it just stupidly fetch the whole tree again,

It fetches the whole tree again.  Which is not much of a loss.
Development moves pretty quickly I'd guess that at 80% or more of
the files have been modified.

cvs update is smart enough to only update the files that have
changed.  I generally use a tarball for the stable release to ensure
I see exactly what the distributions use.  Then CVS for development.

I think I should try the tarballs, as I'm having a hell of a time trying
to get gnumeric to compile.  I have all the necessary packages installed
by it seems that there's some very close dependency linkages between
versions of gnumeric and versions of bonobo.  The stable gnumeric, 0.56,
asks for bonobo > 0.14, but won't compile with my version (0.18),
whereas the bleeding edge version asks for bonobo == 0.19, which doesn't
seem to exist in the repository.  Can anyone tell me what a stable
combination of gnumeric+bonobo is?
