I recently discovered that the Win32 binary for CVS 1.11.2 is broken; you
can't commit to local repositories because it fails with this error:

cvs [commit aborted]: your apparent username (...) is unknown to this system

Looking through past posts I found that this is a common complaint.

So I took to compiling the 1.11.2 sources myself with MS Visual C++ 6, and
lo and behold, committing works just fine, both locally and over SSH. No
changes were required other than adding in the missing getpagesize.h file.

I'd be happy to make this working binary available for inclusion on the CVS
FTP site, if the maintainers are interested.
