CVS is neither C89 compilant nor POSIX compliant.  It assumes a C89
conforming compiler and basic C89 libraries, plus some addional
features.  Those additional features are isolated to assist in porting
and some are optional (e.g., the client/server code assumes Berkeley
sockets but client/server is optional; if you don't include it, you
don't need sockets).  There's a default implementation for POSIX and
additional implementations for some other systems.
