Weird. /kaffedir looks like an absolute path to me.
Could you try /tmp/kaffedir and see if that one works

Does the directory /kaffedir exist? Do you have the
right to write there? If it doesn't exist, do you have
the right to write into / ?

And of course, what platform (cpu & operating system)
are you on?

When you use CVS code, you need to use gmake, because
automake may generate gmake dependant code by default,
as far as I know.
