Quoting, "Specifying a repository" section:

	   A repository specified with `-d' will override the `$CVSROOT'
	environment variable.  Once you've checked a working copy out from the
	repository, it will remember where its repository is (the information
	is recorded in the `CVS/Root' file in the working copy).

	   The `-d' option and the `CVS/Root' file both override the `$CVSROOT'
	environment variable.  If `-d' option differs from `CVS/Root', the
	former is used.  Of course, for proper operation they should be two
	ways of referring to the same repository.
