The instructions are based on a CVS checkout of the software, not on the
source tar ball.  In fact, we have never tried building from the source
tar ball on Windows.

When you do get a CVS checkout, be sure to checkout at least buildtools,
MonetDB, clients, and, depending on whether you want SQL or XQyery,
MonetDB5 + sql, or MonetDB4 + pathfinder.

Also, you will want to choose the correct branch, or even tag (specific
version).  For the Nov2009 SP2 release, the tag to use is Nov2009_4.  If
you use the tag Nov2009, you get the latest version of the release
branch, but there are very few, if any, significant changes.

I hope this helps.  Feel free to ask for more information.
