  Well, as it says in that there error message, there is an unrecognized
keyword "UseNewInfoFmtStrings" in the CVSROOT/config file.  Fix the faulty
config and the server should start working again.  

  BTW if you put UseNewInfoFmtStrings into Google, you get about a million
hits.  Basically it's a keyword that is only valid in more recent versions of
CVS than what you must be running on the server.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
