If someone else manages to fix the problem on Max OS X and sends me a
patch, I'll release 1.12.2 as soon as I can get the patch committed.
Probably a day or two after I see the patch.

If not, then I'm going to have to set aside some time to debug the
problem and I have a few other things on my plate at the moment, so it
might be awhile.

If Christos is referring to symlinks in $CVSROOT, it is fixed.  If he
means random symlinks in random places in the repository, then I think
that is likely broken, at least with LockDir set in CVSROOT/config.

I thought CVS already worked with at least GSSAPI.  It used to work with
Krb4, though that code might be suffering from bitrot.  Did you just fix
this for a particular platform?

I think he means making the CVSADM macro subject to runtime redefinition.
