Working with CVS

Hey everyone, I want to help fix the bugs that Elliot has listed in his
latest report.  I've already narrowed down one, however I'm having some
problems.  Mainly with working with a CVS tree.  How do I handle
compiling stuff?  Here's the deal.  I'm using my main machine with all
my normal Gnome stuff, that I really don't want to replace with CVS
binaries(obviously).  I made a /usr/local/CVS directory to install all
of the CVS versions of gtk, glib, gnome-core, gnome-libs, and
gnome-applets.  gnome-libs and gnome-core compiled fine(I used configure
with the --previx=/usr/local/CVS).  When I wanted to compile
gnome-applets, however, I ran into a problem.  Specifically with
gnome-pager(the first bug I want to fix).  When I try to do a make in
the directory, it build, but I get a compiler warning about a possible
conflict with my .so files in my normal library path and the newer one
in /usr/local/CVS.  How do I fix things so when I'm building in the CVS
tree, it doesn't try grabbing libs from regular directories?  I hope I'm
making some kind of sense.  I don't have specific examples of the
conflict because I'm at work ATM, but I'd be happy to post them if
someone needs to me.
