Wow, I am getting the most bizarre behavior here.  It would seem that
'make distclean' is in fact not restoring the source tree "well enough".

I can do the following:

1.  Start from cvs-1.11p1.tar.gz, gunzip, untar
2.  cd cvs-1.11p1
3.  ./configure --prefix=/bar --without-gssapi --without-krb4
--enable-server > configure.1.log 2>&1
4.  make > make.1.log 2>&1
5.  It builds fine.
6.  make distclean (shows no errors)
7.  Perform steps 3 and 4 again, but with new log file names.  Won't

The successful log file for 'make' starts as follows:

   make  all-recursive
   make[1]: Entering directory `/silmaril.mitre.org/src/cvs-1.11.1p1'
   Making all in lib

The failed log file for 'make' starts as follows:

    cd . && /bin/sh /silmaril.mitre.org/src/cvs-1.11.1p1/missing --run
    FATAL ERROR: Autoconf version 2.13 or higher is required for this script
    cd . \
      && CONFIG_FILES= CONFIG_HEADERS=config.h \
         /bin/sh ./config.status
    creating config.h
    make  all-recursive
