i see. this is indeed a problem.
the reason why zexyconf.h is checked in, is that you can also build zexy 
with M$VC without running configure first: in this case nobody will 
create the zexyconf.h file, which - imho - makes building 
overcomplicated (i don't think it is an option to tell people to copy 
zexyconf.h.in to zexyconf.h and edit to their needs).

the issue here was, that incidentially a "generic" zexyconf.h has been 
overwritten in the past by a generated file.
i have to read the CVS manual, to see how to exclude checked in files 
from being updated.

another solution might be, to run "make distclean" before doing CVS 
updates, which will remove the generated files.
