Quoting cvs.info, "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.
