What does that mean?  I researched this on a FreeBSD 4.1 system with

----- cvs --version ---------------------------------------------
Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.10.7 (client/server)

Copyright (c) 1989-1998 Brian Berliner, david d `zoo' zuhn,

CVS may be copied only under the terms of the GNU General Public License,
a copy of which can be found with the CVS distribution kit.

Specify the --help option for further information about CVS
----- cvs --version ---------------------------------------------

The manpage has no hint about any customization or "difference to
the original".  Should I expect to not everywhere find what I'm
getting used to working with this program in this environment?

Until now I thought the "$FreeBSD$" macro to be the only special
thing about this version.  Where can I learn about those
"issues"?  And should there be any kind of flag in the --version
output as soon as any patch not in the "standard distro" went in?

I'm sorry to ask this here on the list, but I don't have success
to any other platform with another 1.10.7 cvs from here.

PS: Having "cvs -n diff | ... >> $FILE" does its job as well in
the $CVSEDITOR script. :)
