For those who are curious, the guy who set up the cvs system that I've 
been trying to get into replied that I should use the pserver format...I 
had the directory wrong (should have been /usr/cvsroot) (no shock, 
really), but he added the following:

"The problema is that it doesn´t authenticate on LDAP tree, but I´m still 
working on that. I resent a message to cvs development group to ask for 
help on that, but still waiting for a response."

ACK!  nearly 4 years after the first messages I've found and it still 
doesn't look like it works!
