I can echo this.  I've been using cscope for years and it's indispensable.
Conveniently, nvi supports it directly and there's now a port of kscope,
a KDE-based graphical interface to cscope, in the queue (ports/65863,
hint hint) waiting to be committed.

I'm currently working on a multilayer IPsec thing (in Linux, argh!) and
couldn't have lived without the capabilities of cscope to help me understand
the existing code.  I was _very_ happy when it became open-source.
