Dear Francisco,
     inside the espresso folder, please remove the GIPAW folder
and run:

svn checkout http://qeforge.qe-forge.org/svn/qe-gipaw/trunk GIPAW

./configure --with-qe-source=..

If it complains about the wrong QE svn revison, open configure in
GIPAW, look for '11797' and replace the number with the actual one
printed by configure.

Let me know if it doesn't work.
