Doh! Yeah that did it. Knocking out that stupid comment line fixed the problem.

If I had my brain about me when I checked the appropriate makefile earlier I would have realized it to.

It isn't a case that my shell didn't recognize "# FIXME" as a comment; it was a case that it didn't recognize: "<spaces or tabs># FIXME" as a comment. It's a bit wierd that the older UNIX system didn't hiccup on it but oh well. :)

With the guilty comment lines removed from that Makefile, I got CVS installed and it appears to be working. Thanks for the heads up.

Your shell doesn't understand "#" comments?  That FIXME line
occurs in contrib/Makefile (the ultimate source being
contrib/  Just nuke it.
