What would the original change affect?

A minor oddity I noticed:  Today I checked out something from the
freebsd repository to my Mac, and the path as stored in CVS/Repository
was         src/usr.bin/env
instead of  /home/ncvs/src/usr.bin/env

This, in turn, confused some scripts I have.

HOWEVER, it may have been awhile since the last time I did a checkout
like the one I did today, so I do not know if this particular quirk
is at all related to the recent import of 'cvs'.
