That's a good tip, but the docs still don't work as advertised.  The Horde::Cli class isn't anywhere recognizable when you just do a clean install like this.  The trick that works is to go into a directory where horde-fw-symlinks can *find* Horde::Cli:

cd horde
mkdir libs
cd ../horde-git/framework/Cli/lib
horde-fw-symlinks.php  --src ../../../../framework/ --dest ../../../../horde/libs/
cd ../../../../horde
horde-fw-symlinks.php --src ../horde-hatchery/framework
cd ../horde-git/framework/Cli/lib
horde-fw-symlinks.php --src ../../../../horde-hatchery/ --dest ../../../../horde/libs/

This is really not the best thing to do.  I feel what's missing here on instructions on *where* to install the Horde dev libraries or configure our php.ini settings to have the Horde dir included.
