This is an ant issue.  Whenever you see the unresolved variable name
in an error (literally: '${cvsroot}') instead of the path specified
(e.g. /some/nonexistant/path/set/via/cvsroot/variable/), it means you
have not set it.

What is the exact command line you use to set the ${cvsroot} variable
on the command line?  (should be something like this:
-Dcvsroot=/my/cvsroot or -Dcvsroot=:ext:address@hidden:/my/cvsroot)

Also, look at using the '-propertyfile <property file>' command line
option if you need to set a bunch of properties.
