You've got $CVSROOT set wrong -- you should set it to a brand new
(empty!) directory and then do the init.  The directory you're trying to
import should not be under the $CVSROOT directory!

And what version of CVS are you trying to install?  I thought the
current version (1.11, which you can get from didn't
allow this kind of recursive death import.
