The configure script checks for the fnmatch function (used
by cvs via configure.in's AC_FUNC_FNMATCH) in autoconf 2.53
do not detect fnmatch on NetBSD correctly. Thus, the compatibility
function in the cvs sources is unnecessarily used.

This was fixed somewhere between autoconf 2.53 and 2.57.
Run the configure script on NetBSD-1.6 (and probably other versions too).
Regenerated configure with a newer autoconf.
I tested with 2.57, and that worked.
