Thanks for your explains.  When I issue the
"make cvsinit" command, I'll meet some error messages as follows:

werner at debian:~/GUI/PWgui$ make cvsinit
cd doc/pwdocs; make
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/werner/GUI/PWgui/doc/pwdocs'
( cd ../../../..; make doc )
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/werner'
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `doc'.  Stop.
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/werner'
make[1]: *** [links] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/werner/GUI/PWgui/doc/pwdocs'
make: [cvsinit] Error 2 (ignored)
if test ! -d lib; then mkdir lib; fi
cd lib/; rm -f Guib-*;
cd lib/; ln -sf /home/werner/GUI/Guib Guib-0.5
