After building and running tkcvs-6.0 from pkgsrc, I found reference to a
newer beta version (currently 6.3b3) in the info at I

What is the policy concerning updating a package to a beta version (near
as I can tell, this stuff is labelled as beta just because the
maintainer hasn't gotten around to calling it "release")? I think this
would be a worthwhile update to consider, especially since tkcvs-6.0 is
now four years old (!)
