Get the source distribution of RCS Version 5.7. It is available at
ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/devel/vc/rcs-5.7.src.tar.gzand its mirrors. After you have unpacked the archive into your source tree, you need to configure RCS for your system. This is done via the
configurescript in the source directory, which you need to execute first. This will generate a
Makefileand the appropriate
conf.shfor your system. You can then type
make installwhich will build the binaries. At some point you may need to
suto root so the binaries can be installed in the correct directories.
