[ESS] Building 18.10-1 from source

Hi all,

I'm trying to build the latest version from source on Linux. Per the
readme, I run "make", which completes successfully and generates the
compiled Emacs Lisp files under the lisp directory. The problem is then
with "make install":

$ make install
cd lisp; make install
make[1]: Entering directory '/home/nick/software/ess-18.10-1/lisp'
mkdir -p /home/nick/software/share/emacs/site-lisp/ess
cp -p *.elc /home/nick/software/share/emacs/site-lisp/ess
cp -p obsolete/*.elc /home/nick/software/share/emacs/site-lisp/ess
cp: cannot stat 'obsolete/*.elc': No such file or directory
Makefile:41: recipe for target 'install' failed
make[1]: *** [install] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/nick/software/ess-18.10-1/lisp'
Makefile:9: recipe for target 'install' failed
make: *** [install] Error 2

No .elc files were generated for the files in obsolete and the Makefile in
lisp explicitly tries to copy them (line 43) and hence fails.

What to do here?
