Those are RCS keywords from Emacs Lisp files under the directory
`/webcvs/emacs/windows/ntemacs/' which are referred from the GNU Emacs
FAQ for Windows.  These Emacs Lisp files are imported from external
sources and are apparently not intended for development under webcvs.
But all their RCS keywords were expanded with log entries like the

;; $Log: bat-mode.el,v $
;; Revision 1.1  2001/02/13 00:52:03  webcvs
;; import ./software/emacs/windows/ntemacs/contrib

Then it really seems the best way to go is to disable RCS keyword
expansion for CVS import.
