I was suggesting building the cvs executable from
sources. Your message gave no details of your
setup, so I had no other way to answer your question.

For :pserver: use via xinetd, I suspect you should
be able to specify the TMPDIR environment variable
to point to the directory you desire be used.

I suspect that something like this:

service cvspserver
   port        = 2401
   socket_type = stream
   protocol    = tcp
   wait        = no
   user        = root
   passenv     = PATH
   server      = /usr/local/bin/cvs
   server_args = -f --allow-root=/usr/cvsroot pserver
   env        += TMPDIR=/path/to/some/other/directory/for/tmp 

might do what you need... However, as I do not use
or recommend the use of :pserver: mode, I have not
actually tried it.

I reject this confidentiality notice. Please be
advised that e-mail sent to address@hidden is
archived in any number of public and privately
searchable archives. Your administrator is being
silly to include that kind of idiocy on outgoing
