    It shouldn't need write access to the repository.  Make sure your
    /usr/local/etc/cvsweb.conf file properly adds the -R to cvs_options.

    This will work if your system is running a BSD (e.g. DragonFly, FreeBSD,
    NetBSD, OpenBSD).  If it is running something else, linux Solaris or
    Linux, the cvs you have installed might not have the -R option available.

# Options to pass to cvs(1).
# For cvs versions prior to 1.11, the '-l' option doesn't work; If you want
# working checkouts with an older cvs version, you'll have to make sure that
# the cvsweb user can read and write to CVSROOT/history.
@cvs_options = qw(-nf);

push @cvs_options, '-R' if ($uname eq 'FreeBSD' || $uname eq 'DragonFly' || $uname eq 'OpenBSD');
push @cvs_options, '-u' if ($uname eq 'NetBSD');

#      Only FreeBSD's and OpenBSD's cvs(1) supports -R (read only access
#      mode) option, which considerably speeds up checkouts over NFS.
#      A similar effect is provided by -u on NetBSD.
