Shall I just import 1.12.5 then?  It has most of the FreeBSD extensions
as well as some new features which should help us a bit (and the rest I
can reapply to the base source):

* The CVS server no longer locks more than a directory at a time for
  write, so large commits & tags should now have a much harder time
  blocking other operations.

* Add support for large files. Use --disable-largefile to omit support
  for large files.

* A behavior change in `cvs up -jrev1 -jrev2' for modified files with a
  base revision of rev2 (ie, checked-out version matches rev2 and file
  has been modified).  The operation is no longer ignored and instead is
  passed to diff3.  This will potentially re-apply the diffs between the
  two revisions to a modified local file.  Status messages like from a
  standard merge have also been added when the file would not or does
  not change due to this merge request ("[file] already contains the
  changes between [revisions]...").

* CVS now knows how to report, as well as record, `P' record types.

* Experimental support for Pluggable Authentication Modules (PAM) has
  been added, though it is not compiled by default.  If you like this
  feature (or don't), please send us feedback.  See the Cederqvist,
  `./configure --help', and the INSTALL file for more.

* New LocalKeyword and KeywordExpand options to CVSROOT/config which
  FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and NetBSD users may find familiar as the "tag" and
  "tagexpand" options used for many years. The CVSHeader keyword has
  also been added to the mixture.
