I'm having trouble compiling MonetDB on the cluster (I'm trying core-1). 
I follow the instructions Stefan gave to Arjen last week:

I completely removed all src, build and prefix directories and did a 
fresh checkout from cvs.

bootstrap and configure are OK, but make gives a warning:

make: warning:  Clock skew detected.  Your build may be incomplete.

If I ignore the warning and continue installing MonetDB (also from clean 
directories and new checked out sources), It stops during configure with 
the following error message:

checking whether build environment is sane... configure: error: newly 
created file is older than distributed files!
Check your system clock
