Running a very recent (3days) ccvs.  

I want to commit as root.  Its the easiest way on my setup.
However following Larrys' advice about editing src/options.h is not
working for me here.

Run ./configure  Then edit out the section in src/options.h about
BADROOT.  Completely remove those three lines.  When I run make
options.h gets overwritten with the original content.

OK, so try editing src/ by removing that section. 

Run make distclean edit src/

Now checking src/options.h to see that it contains nothing about
BADROOT.  It does not.

make && make install
But still cvs doesn't allow me to commit as root.

I thought maybe since it was a remote connection that cvs server on
the other end was doing it. So compiled that (current released)
version in the same way.  Commenting out the lines about BADROOT after
running ./configure.

Now both client and server have been compiled with BADROOT edited
out.  Still root is not allowed to commit.

Anyone know what might be going on here?
