CVS and gdbm?

The CVS FAQ says:

    By default, the `modules' file behaves as described above. If the
    modules file is very large, storing it as a flat text file may make
    looking up modules slow (I'm not sure whether this is as much of a
    concern now as when CVS first evolved this feature; I haven't seen
    benchmarks). Therefore, by making appropriate edits to the CVS source
    code one can store the modules file in a database which implements the
    ndbm interface, such as Berkeley db or GDBM. If this option is in use,
    then the modules database will be stored in the files `modules.db',
    `modules.pag', and/or `modules.dir'.

Is there any further info on configuring CVS to use gdbm?  Especially,
