You will find a copy of the locate_rcs function in the
cvs-1.11.6/src/filesbr.c source file. However, it is
missing from the windows-NT/filesbr.c copy.

If you already have some version of cvs, then you could checkout a copy
of the cvs- sources from the cvs repository (see for help), you will find that
there are a few other fixes to deal with filesystems that are case
insensitive and that the locate_rcs function has been moved into the
commit.c source file.

So, the good news is that this will be fixed in cvs-1.11.7, but that
version is probably not going to be released for a while yet.

If you download, then you could use it do download the
most recent version, or you could just use that version until such time
as cvs-1.11.7 is available. OR you could go to and get their
version of cvs which is compatible with the version and
extended to work well in a Windows envrionment.

        Good luck,
