oops, I have been using cvsroot as a symbolic link for months and I have no
problems ... yet.

What kind of problems should I be seeing ?

My CMSROOT is /cvssrc/main/cvsroot and /cvssrc links to /d0/cvssrc

Am I missing somthing ?

If CVSROOT is a symbolic link, many things will fail in "interesting"
and non-obvious ways.  Don't do that.
