That implies that the repository file has been corrupted.  The current
development version of CVS will give you a bit more information about
exactly what is corrupted.  If you're using some kind of network file
system (NFS, Samba, etc.) to access your repository, that is almost
certainly what caused the corruption.

That's a known problem with the autoconf setup.  Run ``make distclean''
to get rid of the cached data and then re-run configure with
--without-gssapi.  Or just get the current development version of CVS
