Forgive the OT nature of this, but FBSD tends to be a big CVS user, so I
am hoping someone has an answer for this.  Feel free to reply privately
if you do not wish to inflict your answer up on the whole list...

Is there a way to checkout a project from a CVS repo *into the current
directory*?   If I do this:

cvs co -d .  foo

Or this:

cvs co -d ./ foo

I get this:

cvs checkout: existing repository /usr/cvs/... does not match /usr/cvs/.../foo
cvs checkout: ignoring module waccess
