It would be wise to also specify the kind of host and operating system
for your test case.

You should set testdir properly to a directory that contains no symbolic
links.

In your case, you apparently used something like:

   setenv TESTDIR /home/prj/src/spf/sp-foreign-cvs-sanity

should have been

   setenv TESTDIR /fs/data/mount/home/prj/src/spf/sp-foreign-cvs-sanity

instead.

As has been mentioned many times, cvs is not really fully integrated
with the use of symbolic links in arbitrary places.

        Good luck,
        -- Mark
