[GRASS5] CVS Broken?

I don't know about serious problems with a merge, but I have tried updating
to the latest, and building and run into problems with 
dbmi/drivers/odbc.  This
is my first attempt to build "stable", so I am not saying this is a new 

I get the complaint that sql.h (a unixODBC file I presume) can't be 
found.  This
makes sense, since I don't have it on my system.  What isn't clear to me 
is why
an attempt is even being made to build src/libes/dbmi/drivers/odbc since 
I don't
have unixODBC.  Looking through the Gmakefiles and source code I don't see
how this is intended to build (or be skipped) on systems without unixODBC.

Any suggestions?

PS. I am building from the latest stable despite the warning Glynn sent 
because I am
afraid I might have been the one to botch CVS.

PPS.  Thanks to Markus and everyone for the explantions about the 
branches.  I had
missed the signifigance of updating with a "branch" tag vs. a release 
tag.  Apparently
it has special semantics that locks you into the branch, but not a 
particular tagged
snapshot of all the files.  I think I have all my files checked properly 
into CVS now.
