That probably won't help you.  admin -l doesn't implement a useful
form of strict locking anyway -  Use edit -c, which at least tries to
check to see if other people are editing the file.  CVS doesn't
support strict locking in any real sense - there is nothing to stop
someone editing a 'locked' file, and they won't know it's locked until
they try to check it in - by which time it's too late.

You're probably trying to use the old make files - They're completely
out of date (In fact I'd better delete them just in case someone tries
to use them again).

You need:

VC6 + SP5.
Platform SDK (recent).
Kerberos headers/libs.
