    I don't see how, when the build behaves exactly as expected.

Please note that I do not question the results, but the implementation
(and even just one aspect of it).  The basic convention I'm refering to
is stated in the GNU Coding Standards:

    Each program-name variable should come with an options variable that
    is used to supply options to the program.

By having CVS and CVSOPTS variables we're misleading the reader of the
GNUmakefile to make assumtions about how these variables relate to each
other.  I think we should avoid this if it is not very hard.

That's what's bugs me, but it is not the most important thing in the
