I work on other project where I need to use CVSREAD=y

This means that I have to checkout (not update)

        cvs co ...
        chmod -R u+w .
        make bootstrap

However, if you build in a different directory (the details are in INSTALL),
you can avoid "polluting" the checked out sources with the build.

I typically use the following to update and compile:

        cvs up
        (cd lisp; make recompile)

PS:  I suggested to create an INTRO_CVS file a while back which should
contain just this kind of information; maybe you can grep through the
emacs-devel archives to see what was suggested back then.
