It's not looking for something named ldes - it is looking for libdes,
which was included with FreeBSD 4 and below through the 'secure'
distribution.  This may indicate that you haven't installed that
distribution (an install group - very different concept from Linux

FreeBSD 4.9 include cvs already, though, so I don't quite see why you're
building it.

If you need to rebuild CVS with different options, you may want to look
at the port of CVS 1.11.5 with IPv6 + some extra patches in
/usr/ports/devel/cvs+ipv6.  This can at least tell you how to build

Oh, and /usr/src on FreeBSD is customarily used for system sources - I
recommend using /usr/local/src if you need to do purely source based
installs (though I personally usually create a port for any separately
developed software I need to install.)
