CVSROOT missing even after using cvsroot-all

sorry, the announcment of modifying the supfile to include cvsroot-all was
made there...

I thought that, but the only difference in the supfile is :

*default release=cvs


*default release=cvs tag=RELENG_4_7

and the directory /home/ncvs.

If I'm trying to build a 4.7 release, wouldn't the cvs-supfile cause the
5.x srcs to be checked out? If not, then why would I want a duplicate src
tree in /home/ncvs when I already have one in /usr/src? It seems that all
I'm missing is the CVSROOT directory.

Thanks for the help.
