Is CVS' annoying binary file handling capability preventing the rbf files from getting into the CVS repository? If so maybe you could uuencode it and have uudecode be part of the build and/or install process?

No, they're not in CVS because they are not source files.

Of course the "correct" solution, considering this is GNURadio, is to have a GPLed toolchain available that will generate the rbf's from the verilog and other sources, and integrate it all with the make. Unfortunately this is pretty tough at the moment, since the free-as-in-beer Windows tools can be a real bear to get going under WINE, or you are faced with dropping big bucks for "real" GNU/Linux tools. Maybe GPL is too big a pill for the Alteras and Xilinxs of the world at the moment, but they could still earn major points with the community by making their free tools available for GNU/Linux. (Hello, anybody from Altera or Xilinx listening?)
