Two Questions:

   I'm on a slow connection. After the feed stopped during the first
cvs checkout attempt, several attempts to update have met something
like, "cvs update: move away src/file.whatever; it is in the way."
...can't get it all at once and wish there was something comparable
to ftp regets for this that would work.

   Does that message from the cvs server really mean, for sure, that
something is wrong--something that would stop the build from happening
right?  Is there any way to do a clean cvs checkout/update with a slow

   And how can this be done with ssh?  The following, per documentation
instruction, is not working.

       Hoboken, NJ
       Instructions: for ssh: '; CVS_RSH=ssh'."

So would it be alright to use this, for example, instead?; CVS_RSH=ssh

And would it work?
