Make the repository file executable (this has to be done by hand, there
are no CVS commands to do it).  CVS remembers the executable state of a
file when it's initially committed, but it doesn't change it on
subsequent commits.  (That's one of the things PreservePermissions was
intended to address, but the code is buggy and no one has been motivated
to fix it yet.)
