If you have a userland and source tree that match each other, you can
use something like this:

    # cd /usr/src/bnu/usr.bin/cvs
    # make cleandir && make cleandir
    # make obj && make all
    # make install

This should update just the CVS related binaries.  Note that the *REAL*
source of cvs is under /usr/src/contrib/cvs though.  Make sure that both
/usr/src/contrib/cvs *AND* /usr/src/gnu/usr.bin/cvs are up to date
before you try to build cvs.
