Thanks, I should have done more tests.  CVS works on
alphaev67-dec-osf5.0 and sparc-sun-solaris2.8 with non-GNU tools.
scripts/depcomp was not included by a "make dist" here, but it may be
a local problem.  The self tests core dump on rs6000-ibm-aix4.3.2.0
and mips-sgi-irix6.5 with non-GNU tools, I'll try to debug it.
