I normally do

make -f Makefile.cvs
make dist

doesn't that work for you ?

I am not sure if the glade source for gODBCConfig still exists, I will 
try and search it out. It only started life as glade, then I did much 
more by hand. It was converted from a simple binary, to a loadable lib 
so it was of use to the gnomedb folk.
