The cvswrapper.c file was in a subdirectory of the CVSROOT directory
called CVSROOT/freebsd/.  We've got several CVSROOT's now, one for each
of ports, src, doc, projects and www.  I'm not sure which one of these
it is in anymore.

Probably not.  We recently (at the beginning of the year) split the
repository off onto a separate box and made everyone access it remotely
so that the filesystem wasn't directly available to committers.  This
makes things a lot more secure.  There were certain ramifications of
doing this which meant that we had to make some special changes.
