I need to use CVS on our VMS Alpha box (running OpenVMS 7.2-1), but I cannot get 
recent CVS distributions to build clean, so I am using a fairly old binary:

> Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.8.86 (client)

Obviously I have to use pserver and I have confirmed that the CVSROOT that I am 
using works fine (from Cygwin if it matters).  I can correctly login to the 
repository, but if I try and /do/ anything, e.g.

> cvs co -c

I get the following error:

> cvs [checkout aborted]: request `Repository' not supported by server

Anyone recognize this?  Ideas???
