We've known about this for a month or three. The 1.11.2 source finds
the wrong options.h under Windows. I've been solving this by moving all
the options into windows-NT/config.h and configure.in respectively.
I've made it through most of it but I still have one or two issues to
solve before the 1.11.3 release. Nice to know the changes are working.
I hadn't gotten around to testing them under Windows yet.

I don't know what's right any longer! You have to think for both of us - for
all of us!

There was apparently an error in the CVS 1.11.2 build for Win32.
This error message is contained in src/commit.c, inside a #ifdef CVS_BADROOT
In windows-NT/options.h, we find #undef CVS_BADROOT. So, this error message
should never occur in the NT version.
I have rebuilt the code using VC6, with no modifications except that I
copied getpagesize.h from grep 2.24, since getpagesize is expected (but not
included) in the CVS distribution (I didn't spend any time researching this,
but I have at least three versions of getpagesize.h, all included with
various versions of GNU stuff, all with different dates and sizes - I don't
know anything about the status or validity of the getpagesize.h file I
The error occurs with the distributed 1.11.2 exe, but not with the exe I
built from the sources.
A quick check with strings.exe shows that the distributed exe contains the
error message, but the one I built does not.
