CVS (the way I and most people run it) really shouldn't overwrite
local changes upon update.  If you really are editing a Makefile
(which was generated by the configure script) and losing your
changes, it really has not much to do with CVS other than you
happen to run the configure script shortly after a cvs update.

If that's what is happening, you can create a patch (diff between
a raw and edited version) and re-apply it a will.  Often it will
apply cleanly to an updated Makefile (or generally more
preferable, a Makefile.am.)

...or you could pull out all the stops and use CVS's support for
such problems:


but it would almost certainly be overkill and a hassle besides.
