All the Linux distributions I have access too include sccs2rcs as part
of the CVS package because it is distributed as part of the CVS tar ball.
Because of that, I consider it "part of CVS".

Sorry, but I disagree.  There are already a number of perl scripts in the
contrib directory so the package as a whole depends on perl already.
I don't think you can argue that I've not reduced the number of
dependencies for the CVS package.
