You don't seem to know that there's only one CVS executable -- it
provides client, server, and stand-alone functionality.  Bundling the
client and stand-alone makes sense since it allows users to access both
local and remote repositories without having to use different commands. 
Bundling stand-alone and server makes sense because the server uses
nearly all of the stand-alone code.  Although you can build a CVS
executable without client and/or server functionality, it's rarely done
except on platforms that can't support the client and/or server
functionality.  Standard CVS doesn't have an option to build a client-
only executable.
