 make check fails if the first id command in $PATH is not GNU id
 (or any id that understands -u).

gmake[1]: Entering directory `/tmp/cvs-1.11/src'
/bin/sh ./sanity.sh `pwd`/cvs
This test should produce no other output than this line, and a final "OK".
id: illegal option -- u
Usage: id [user]
       id -a [user]
/usr/bin/id: illegal option -- -
Usage: id [user]
       id -a [user]
Notice: The default version of id is defective, using
/usr/bin/id instead.
/usr/bin/id: illegal option -- u
Usage: id [user]
       id -a [user]
expr: RE error
Test suite does not work correctly when run by a username
containing regular expression meta-characters.
gmake[1]: *** [check] Error 1
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/cvs-1.11/src'
gmake: *** [check] Error 2
$ which id

 I guess you'll have to use something like
   id | sed 's/^uid=\([^(]*\)(.*$/\1/'

 Also, how long is the test suite supposed to run? It's been sitting here
 for about ten minutes, using almost no cpu, and creating gobs of temp
 files in /tmp. That's on a 360MHz UtraSPARC cpu.
