Here's the problem from

Anybody willing to take over CVS maintainership?

Ah!  That'd do it!

on 64 bit     cvs-1.11.23-1

while 32 bit  cvs-1.12.13-10

1.11.23 seems the last of the stable

and it was released 2 years after 1.12.13 (2008 vs 2006)
may be just packing cvs-1.11.23-1 for 32bit solve the issue.

I can look on the build phase, if no one else volunteer

Likewise I'm happy to give this a go, although I have near-zero
experience of CVS, so if there are non-trivial problems I'm going to be
flailing in the dark.

I'll see if I can throw a build together in the next few days unless
Marco/someone else beats me to it.


I just uploaded a cvs-1.11.23-2 version as test for 32bit only.
It uses all the patches available in Fedora.

cvs-1.11.23-1 patches were not enough due to some change in
info building.

Could you check if does it solve your problem ?
