compiling twin

Anyone successfully compiled twin on Debian? I guess so since
some people seem to have tried it, but I'm having no luck.

I unpacked the source into /usr/local/src/twin/3.0.10. Firstly,
I run setup in the makeinclude directory, then run configure
in the main directory, source the config.twin, then make rc.
make rc compiles the rc source in bin/rc/<blah>, but then
installs the rc binary as bin/rc -- which is already a directory!

If I change the TWINDIR, it can no longer find the rc source.
I used "make -e INSTALLDIR=/usr/local rc" to compile and install
rc okay (after changing the Makefile to use byacc instead of
yacc; yacc has syntax errors?!), but after compiling the whole
source, it always wants to install the package in a directory
which it hasn't even created, Linux/bin or something. 

Any ideas, or a package in the works? Frankly I'm a bit
surprised that a mob that can write a program to emulate
Windows can't seem to get the installation process to work.
I've tried it twice now.
