Pserver/CVSROOT not being identified

        I've been using CVS for a while, but strictly with local
filesystems.  I recently upgraded to 1.11 on Solaris and set up a cvs

I'm getting some very weird behavior where it doesn't look like the pserver
parameter is being read from the CVSROOT environment variable.

Here's an example of what's going on:


address@hidden:~/work  ]  $ cvs -d
:pserver:address@hidden:/users/cvs/cvsroot co fault
cvs server: Updating www
cvs server: Updating www/etc
cvs server: Updating www/htdocs
cvs server: Updating www/htdocs/alarmviewer
cvs server: Updating www/htdocs/alarmviewer/javaviewer
cvs server: Updating www/htdocs/alarmviewer/webviewer
cvs server: Updating www/htdocs/avhelp

address@hidden:~/work  ]  $ export
address@hidden:~/work  ]  $ cvs co fault
cvs [checkout aborted]: the :server: access method is not supported by this
port of CVS
address@hidden:~/work  ]  $ cvs --version

Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.10 `Halibut' (client/server)


Shouldn't the command cvs co fault work the same with a -d and the CVSROOT
explicitly specified as when the CVSROOT is set as an environment variable?

Any help anyone could give me would be greatly appreciated.
