Description of problem:
Using cvs-1.11.5-3 from FC-1, cvs supports the -l option to turn off
logging (useful when using cvsweb).  However, the cvs from FC-2-test1
(cvs-1.11.11-1) does NOT support the -l option.

Running cvs --help-options does not list the -l option in 1.11.11-1
(but it DOES in 1.11.5-3).  Strangely, the option is still listed in
the cvs man page and cvs info page.

According to cvshome.org, the -l option DOES still exist, so I suspect
there is something wrong with the 1.11.11-1 package or build that lost
the option.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. cvs --help-options  (wont show -l)
2. cvs -l co -p /path/to/filename (will show an error about option -l
not supported)
