CVS is not a build system.  Make sure your build system sets the
permissions on the product files appropriately!  (If the sources to your
build system scripts and/or makefiles are also checked into CVS then
you'll be tracking the changes in file permissions of your products
automatically too!)

BTW, I second everything that Eric said on this subject too!  There is
no such thing as a secure sell script!  ;-)
