I just don't understand what's going on there.

What is your default shell? It shouldn't matter, since cvs.sh should be
run with `sh' no matter what, but it's still worth checking.

Also, what's your `locale' setting? Again, it shouldn't matter, but you
never know.

bizarre behaviour :S

That's really odd. I don't recall if the snapshots have Makefile.cvs .
If so, do you run it?
