With CVS 1.12.x the keyword expansion is natively being taken care of in
'config' and not in 'options' (which is a local hack in cvs' main.c, r1.5).
Take a stock cvs 1.12.x and checkout from a FreeBSD repository.  The keywords
will not get expanded.

Apply following patch, it does not interfere with 1.11.x and allows 1.12.x
to work as it should.
