A local checkout of a cvs repository is no different than an extracted
source tarball (except for the "CVS" subdirectories where cvs stores its
administrative information). IOW, you should be able to just checkout the
source from the repository (using a "cvs -d REPOSITORY checkout MODULE"),
adapt it to your system (either by running "configure", if the project
uses it, or by editing some header, which may not be necessary for a
really portable project), and then run "make" and "make test".
