I see. I never considered the fact the the local-only cvs should pass the

Great. I appreciate it. The new "pserver" test passes in the remote mode
(RedHat 7.0, i686).

However, "modules5" fails in the remote mode:

PASS: modules5-7
** expected:
U realmodule/a
cvs [a-z]*: Executing ../tmp/cvs-sanity/cvsroot/checkout\.sh. .realmodule..
checkout script invoked in .*
args: realmodule
** got:
U realmodule/a
checkout script invoked in /tmp/cvs-serv13285
args: realmodule
cvs server: Executing ''/tmp/cvs-sanity/cvsroot/checkout.sh' 'realmodule''
FAIL: modules5-8

It seems to be a trivial problem with sorting the output. However, this
makes me wonder if "make remotecheck" is a part of the release procedure.

Maybe "make check" should include the remote testing? The later should
exit gracefully (i.e. with code 0) if the binary doesn't include server
support (now it fails).
