I haven't worked out the patches for these, yet. Sorry. And if there's a better person/email alias to send these failure notices to, please let me know.

<address@hidden> is the appropriate list. We also like to see these in the issues database on ccvs.cvshome.org for tracking purposes, but since more people are using bug-cvs at the moment, it is still useful to notify bug-cvs that a new issue has been created. bug-cvs cc'd.

CVS build failure with --disable-cvs-ndbm:

gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I.. -I../lib -I../diff -I../zlib -I/usr/kerberos/include -g -O2 -c `test -f 'add.c' || echo './'`add.c

   In file included from add.c:27:
cvs.h:706: parse error before '*' token

I'd love to see an AC_REPLACE_FUNC style patch for this. I looked into what it would take once and I don't think it would be overly complicated, but it wouldn't quite be trivial since the myndbm included with CVS and the ndbm library I looked at (gdbm?) don't implement the same API.

CVS build failure: --disable-password-authenticated-client

Fix committed.

CVS build failure: --without-editor

gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I.. -I../lib -I../diff -I../zlib -I/usr/kerberos/include -g -O2 -c `test -f 'main.c' || echo './'`main.c main.c:60: `EDITOR_DFLT' undeclared here (not in a function)

I'm not sure what behavior I would expect from compiling CVS without an editor. I guess it could be rewritten to require log messages to be passed to the -F argument, but I'm not sure this is really very useful.

For now I checked in a fix to configure.in which errors out with the message:

configure: error: CVS cannot be compiled without a default log message editor.
   Try `configure --with-editor'.

when run with --without-editor.

CVS build failure: --without-tmpdir

configure: error: --with-tmpdir requires an absolute path.

There's nothing wrong with this. CVS needs somewhere to store temporary files.
