- From development perspective I would always use CVS, and a dedicated
installation directory.

cvs -z3
- -d:pserver:anonymous at monetdb.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/monetdb co -P
clients MonetDB MonetDB5 buildtools sql
sh doit-quick-debug.sh

Will get you an:
/opt/monetdb-head

So if something fails, you can delete the entire /opt/monetdb-head, be
descrete about your data directory though. If you look at the script the
key component here is --prefix=/opt/monetdb-head that forces the
installation in a specific direction.
