I remember having a similar problem on a platforms I built cvs 1.11.1p1 on.
I am not sure which one gave me the problem.

I have built it on DEC alpha (OSF1 V4.0d), SGI (IRIX64 6.5), IBM (AIX), and
DEC OpenVMS (Version V7.2-1).

I have CVS repositories on DEC alpha, SGI, IBM and use pserver with each
repository.  The DEC OpenVMS uses pserver in client mode to access the DEC
alpha server.

The files in the contrib directory are not necessary for you to use cvs.

You may have a good executable of cvs already built.  Check your
cvs-1.11.1p1/src directory for an executable of cvs.  If the executable is
there, try "cvs -version" and see what it says.  The normal installation
moves it to /usr/local/bin.  If the version command works, export a CVSROOT
and do a cvs init.  

Good Luck,
