I downloaded it, then built it like so:

    mkdir ++build
    cd ++build
    ../configure --with-emacs=xemacs --prefix=$HOME/local
    make install

I then added


to load-path and added

    (load "dvc-core")

to ~/.xemacs/init.el.

I then restarted xemacs.  Any attempt to use the menubar resulted in a crash
with this error:

    Fatal error: assertion failed, file menubar-x.c, line 579, ABORT()

I've yet to investigate further.  (Time to get ready for work...)

dvc (distributed version control for emacs) looks interesting.  Attempting
to build with xemacs "21.5  (beta28)" gives loads of errors.  

Any thoughts?
