The option is --enable-rootcommit, use of --enable_rootcommit should
give you an error message.

Without your patch... in both the cvs-1.12.1 and cvs-1.12.6 sources...

If I './configure' without mention of the --enable-rootcommit option,
the config.h file will have a '#define CVS_BADROOT 1' line in it which
will put code into src/commit.c to disallow the euid == 0 (root) user
- From doing cvs commits. This is the documented default for the
- --enable-rootcommit option (disabled).

If I './configure --enable-rootcommit', the config.h file will have
a '/* #undef CVS_BADROOT */' line in it and there will be no check
added to the src/commit.c file, so commits by root will be allowed.

Your patch would therefore appear not to be needed.

What is the platform that is giving you problems?
