Something broken at the development source tree?

I just tried to upgrade my MySQL 5.1 server from the development source tree. Unfortunately, with no success.

First I tried to get the latest updates via BitKeeper, but the links seem to be broken: and

So I decided to download the latest nightly snapshot and got me the file I extracted the file with "tar xvfz mysql-5.1.10-beta-nightly-20060415.tar.gz" (which worked without problems) and changed into the just created directory. From there, I tried to compile the source code:

suse:/MySQL_51/mysql-5.1.10-beta-nightly-20060415 # BUILD/compile-amd64-max
testing athlon64 ... ok

Does somebody have an idea?
