cvs 1.12.10 still using rcs binaries?

 From: Chris Bohn Subject: cvs 1.12.10 still using rcs binaries? Date: Fri, 10 Dec 2004 12:33:04 -0500 User-agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040910

We removed the rcs binaries from our machines since someone accidently corrupted a cvsroot repository file by using rcs on it. I found this:
```
https://www.cvshome.org/cyclic/cyclic-pages/rcs.html
```
"CVS 1.9 and earlier were also implemented by calling RCS programs, but this is no longer true as of CVS 1.10."
```
```
so I was pretty certain we wouldn't need the rcs binaries since we are now using 1.12.10 (and even before were using 1.10). Now, when I check in a file, I get an error like:
```
[D:\temp\testproj]cvs ci vers.cfg
/cvs/root/systems/testproj/vers.cfg,v  <--  vers.cfg
new revision: 1.14; previous revision: 1.13

```
So is 1.12.10 really calling the rcs binary rlog, or is there some other problem (perhaps some option when the server binary was compiled)?
```
thanks
Chris
