Yes. It looks more sensible than the previous one did for this. Thanks.

I'm currently having trouble building from CVS:
../src/asn1c gnutls.asn gnutls_asn1_tab.c
make[2]: ../src/asn1c: Command not found
make[2]: [gnutls_asn1_tab.c] Error 127 (ignored)

Is there a bootstrapping problem here? - It looks like asn1c needs
libgnutls.la and libgnutls.la needs asn1c. Copying an asn1c from a
previous build gave me a parse error on gnutls.asn.
