Building from CVS often imposes more severe requirements than simply
from a release tarball. For example, GNU Troff (groff) doesn't keep
files in CVS; users building from CVS are required to install texinfo >=
Of course, this should be documented in some README file, which *is* kept
the CVS; (and yes, groff *does* fulfil this expectation).
