        I have found that if the .cvsrc file has <CR><LF> as the line
        termination that cvs does not like that. Below is what it does.

/tools/wdtgnu/cvs-1.11.21/bin/cvs --version
/tools/wdtgnu/cvs-1.11.21/bin/cvs: invalid option -- 
Usage: cvs [cvs-options] command [command-options-and-arguments]
  where cvs-options are -q, -n, etc.
    (specify --help-options for a list of options)
  where command is add, admin, etc.
    (specify --help-commands for a list of commands
     or --help-synonyms for a list of command synonyms)
  where command-options-and-arguments depend on the specific command
    (specify -H followed by a command name for command-specific help)
  Specify --help to receive this message

The Concurrent Versions System (CVS) is a tool for version control.
For CVS updates and additional information, see
    the CVS home page at http://cvs.nongnu.org/

I found this in the cygwin 1.11.17 version but tried it on linux also and get
the same results.

It seems that the line termination should be able to be any CR or LF


This is my .csrc file and use <CR><LF> at the end of each line

diff   -rHEAD
cvs    -q
update -d


        I assume cvsrc.c need fixed but I don't know how.
