Hi all.

We are using  cvs from long time (it is great software, thank you!).
At the beginning we installed cvs server (v. 1.11) on linux mandrake and it is working till now.

We need to change the OS to FreeBSD (we need to change the hardware).
After installing the FreeBSD 5.4 we usend FreeBSD ports to install cvs. All was ok and we installed the version from ports (1.11.17).

But we found problem by using this cvs version with our development toos (we are using old java based NetBeans 3.2 and it is not possible to change it for now).

We found that Netbeans needs the "case" cvs-commant to work, but it is not supported in cvs 1.11.17 (we are not cvs nor freebsd experts).

In case we try to checkout the repository we receive from NetBeans:
unrecognized request `Case '.

The next step was to change to cvs 1.11 .
We got the source from and try to compile this version:

and we receive:

cvs1# make

*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/mysrc/cvs/cvs-1.11.

My  questions:

1. Can I enable "case" support in cvs 1.11.17
2. If it is not possible, what is the latest cvs version that supports "case".
3. How to correct this erro by compiling cvs 1.11.

Many thanks in advance,
