Thanks, Derek! 

But I still wonder if configuring-by-patching really is necessary? 

I quote from Karl Fogel's CVS-book:

"Before running through the steps needed to set up the password server,
let's examine how such connections work in the abstract. When a remote CVS
client uses the :pserver: method to connect to a repository, the client is
actually contacting a specific port number on the server machine -
specifically, port number 2401 (which is 49 squared, if you like that sort
of thing). Port 2401 is the designated default port for the CVS pserver,
although one could arrange for a different port to be used as long as both
client and server agree on it. "

Sadly, KF doesn't reveal HOW to arrange it...
