I agree with you. We have some folks that insist on having both makefile
and Makefile files in the same directory and it makes it impossible for
folks with MacOS X boxes to use directly.

Of course, it is challenging to do an in-place build of cvs itself due
to the 'CVS' directory confusing the makefile target for the 'cvs'
executable... it becomes necessary to either do a build in a separte
repository or to set the EXEEXT macro on the command-line.
