Thanks, Stephen. I did indeed remember that i had had problems in the past with
/pack/xemacscvs but didn't remember why.
Could someone find out what the correct symlink is now?

It's automounter and CVS-does-or-doesn't-check-realpath braindamage.
For most operations, /pack/xemacscvs works fine. For rtag, it does
not; the user-specified root and the server-computed root mismatch and
the operation fatals. Ben needs rtag, so he (apparently) simply
switched to /mnt/anoncvs/xemacscvs globally. This makes rtag work (or
at least it did last I checked).
The automount point may have moved, or some software been upgraded, I
I took a look at patching CVS for this but the code sucks and the
"follow the link" strategy workaround seemed to be OK.
