Thanks, but I was really asking the question for the whole *project*.
With PRCS I can talk about revision n - 1 of the *project*, i.e., the
full set of the files.  According to private messages with Lars
(Hecking :), you need to tag to be able to do that.  So I dropped this
idea and I'm currently running the following script.  Hopefully
tomorrow it should give some hints.

#! /bin/zsh

for i in {1..350}
  echo '=================================================================='
  echo "Getting $i days ago..."
  echo "Getting $i days ago..." >>LOG
  cvs update -A -D "$i day ago"
  rm automake
   cd ~/src/libtool-mlt/demo
   /tmp/am/automake --amdir=/tmp/am --verbose
   cd ..
   make check TESTS='cdemo-static.test cdemo-make.test cdemo-exec.test 
demo-static.test demo-make.test' && exit 1
  ) || break

echo "STOPPED at: $i" >> LOG
mail address@hidden <LOG
