MonetDB-Mars-SuperBall-SR3.tar.bz2. I have the impression that something
is wrong with the source tarball.

Do you mean 'mclient -l mal -H' ?

Readline works as I mentioned:

And the history is also saved correctly: I can get to the commands of
the last session with Ctrl-p.

\q does. \d doesn't:

$ mclient -l sql -d demo -H
MAPI  = monetdb at localhost:50000
QUERY = \d
ERROR = !unexpected symbol (\)

I would like to re-build. Which one would you recommend:

   --nightly=target  download and install a nightly snapshot of the stable
                     or current branch, target must be 'stable' or 'current'
   --cvs             checkout a CVS snapshot of the current branch
