That frequently happens when you download with a browser -- the browser
automagically unzips the file but doesn't remove the .gz from the name.

You need to tell inetd to reread its configuration file, usually by
sending it a SIGHUP.  See your inetd man page for details.

No, those are service names, not executable names.  You inetd config
file entry is what ties the cvspserver service to the /usr/local/bin/cvs
executable.  And note that CVS doesn't use UDP, so you should get rid of
the second line (although it doesn't hurt anything to have it, nothing
will ever use it).
