code.h should live in Include. It was originally committed to CVS, so it
is in the subversion repository from day one; it should always have
been there since you started using subversion.

Do you have code.h mentioned in Include/.svn/entries?

that nobody else is seeing these problems :-)

I recommend to use pre-built binaries, e.g. the ones from


I would also recommend to throw away the sandbox completely and check it
out from scratch. Please report whether this gives you code.h.
