Description Stepan Kasal 2007-06-08 12:44:01 EDT
The first line of script /usr/share/cvs/contrib/sccs2rcs is
  #! no -f
which is obviously wrong.

I guess the reason is that ./configure detected "no" csh.  (The script is
written in csh.)

While fixing the problem, we have to take care that cvs does not become
dependant on csh.

I see several options:
1) fix the #! line, but tell the find-requires to ignore this (chmod -x the script?)
2) drop the script
3) accept the perl rewrite of sccs2rcs which was present in FC 3 and RHEL 4, but
refused upstream (for details, see bug #57974 and

This problem is present not only in current devel, but also in RHEL-5 and in
Fedora Core 4--Fedora 7.
