OK, I've got this all set, I've verified that the unmodified sources
don't work on NSK, and that my modification does.  "make check" fails

make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/local/cvs/cvs-1.11.6_nsk/src'
/bin/sh ./sanity.sh `pwd`/cvs
This test should produce no other output than this message, and a
final "OK".
(Note that the test can take an hour or more to run and periodically
for as long as one minute.  Do not assume there is a problem just
nothing seems to happen for a long time.)

FAIL: basica-6.2
make[2]: *** [localcheck] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/cvs/cvs-1.11.6_nsk/src'
make[1]: *** [check-am] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/cvs/cvs-1.11.6_nsk/src'
make: *** [check-recursive] Error 1

How much does this matter?   I still haven't gotten any good feeling
from someone who actually has the power to put my patches into the
source that they're interested in doing so....

I'm about to upgrade the OS to the latest version, so I want to wait
any make sure that the unmodified source still has problems on the
latest version, then I'll be ready to send out the (relatively small)
