Is your build script under source control?  We recommend that it is, 
just for this reason.

There could be a couple reasons for the needed change.  The password 
isn't necessary if there's a .cvspass file (with the correct entry) in 
the user's ~/.cvs directory, for example.  (That file is created when 
you do a cvs login as that user.)
