Hmmm.  I think I spoke too soon.  I could swear it worked once, but I'm
getting the same error again.  I manually changed "cons" to "concat" in
cvs-prefix-define's definition in pcl-cvs-util.el and byte-compiled it.
Any idea what's going on?

I notice that you made the change in pcvs-util.el.  Has the file changed
names in a new version of PCL-CVS?  I have 2.9.9, which appears to be
the newest available at ftp://rum.cs.yale.edu/pub/monnier/pcl-cvs.  Is
there a newer version available somewhere else?
