| I use GNU Emacs 21.3.1 on a Debian "sarge" GNU/Linux system. I have
| been using RCS via 'vc.el' for years. In my .emacs the variable
| `vc-checkin-switches' is set (to "-zLT", because I can't stand having
| almost, but not quite, ISO-format dates, if you're interested). A
| project I work on recently moved to Sourceforge, so I've started to
| use CVS for those files in addition to RCS for my local projects.
| When I try to check a file in (aka commit) to cvs using C-x v v with a
| modified file under CVS control as the front active buffer, I get an
| error message that "-z" is not a valid switch:

The vc-checkin-switches is global. What you need is "local" switch for
RCS, which you define in your environment. For bash:

   export RCSINIT='-x,v -zLT'

or in ~/.emacs:

   (setenv "RCSINIT" "-x,v -zLT")
