It would probably be better to do:

        cvspserver stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/bin/env \
        - /usr/bin/cvs -f --allow-root=/usr/src/cvs pserver

The `-' causes env to delete everything from the environment (some
implementations of env use `-i' instead).

As of CVS 1.11, "Trouble making a connection to a CVS server" in the CVS
manual mentions the problem and its underlying cause, and mentions env
as one possible solution (although it doesn't give an example since the
exact syntax varies as noted above).
