:Thanks.  I didn't do that originally because I didn't want to have to fix
:all the CVS/Root files (they don't have :pserver: in them). 

After unpacking, you could initially do:

% cd /usr/src; zsh -c 'for I in **/CVS/Root(.l1); do rm $I; ln CVS/Root $I; done'
# or use find to achieve the same
% ls -l /usr/src/CVS/Root
-rw-r--r--  3300 root  wheel  36 Nov 16  1999 /usr/src/CVS/Root

Then just modify the one file.  Or specify `-d' everytime to cvs :-)
