The -T global option and $TMPDIR environment variable affect the local
CVS only.  If you want to set it for the server, you need to set it in
the command that invokes the server (which would be in inetd.conf or
equivalent for pserver, in $CVS_SERVER for ext, etc.).  If you want to
set it for the client, you need to specify it on every CVS command (or,
more likely, put it in each user's ~/.cvsrc file).
