Emacs 22.0.90 pretest

Written by

Emacs pretest was announced on october 27th. Since I’ve been following CVS HEAD for a while now, I decided to go with the pretest now. Downloaded the tarball and tried to run ‘make-package’ from the ‘mac’ directory, as I always do.

This failed miserably due to the simple fact that the files were not there, naturally curious I took the tagged version from CVS and found that the files were there, so the logical place for the error would be in ‘make-dist’ which creates the distribution. The following patch resolves the build issues with the tarball, this was submitted to the emacs-devel list on Nov 2nd.
