I once managed to get a 1.12.5 running on 7.2-1.  I'd like to send you a
patch but I can't since cvshome discontinued pserver access.  That was
the only access method I could get to work.  All the other rsh/ssh
didn't work.  I tried rsh with ucx's rsh and fish but to no avail.  I
quickly looked at what was necessary to change but it seemed rather
complex to me.  There is a small chance I sent a patch to this list -
search the archives - but probably I didn't as it wasn't quite ready. 
It certainly has problems with filenames not supported on ODS-2 volumes
although I didn't do a proper check on ODS-5.  And cvs up always creates
new versions, even in [.cvs].  So a lot of purge [...] is required.
