IMHO, there's a bug in the postinstall script of the cvsnt Mac OS X  
installer package:
To create a link to cvsnt, it uses

	ln -sf /usr/bin/cvs cvsnt

However, this will usually create the symbolic link at the root  

The postupgrade script contains the following command to create a  

	ln -sf cvsnt /usr/bin/cvs

which makes more sense, as it creates a symlink to the cvsnt  
executable in /usr/bin.

OTOH, the installer package already contains this symlink, so this  
line shouldn't be needed either...

Am I misunderstanding the meaning of those symlinks?
