The problem is that the compilation result (which getcwd function is compiled in the final CVS executable) probably depends on the file system on which is executed the "./configure" script.

There is a file lib/xgetcwd.c which calls the getcwd implementation. If you manually comment out the
//#include "getcwd.h"
line, then the getcwd from <unistd.h> is used. This can be probably achieved also with some flags configuration, but I just needed quick workaround.

Until this gets fixed, how does one "replace the fallback algorithm"?

Hi the CVS version 1.12.13, has broken either the fallback getcwd algorithm implementation or the detection routine of libc getcwd (or both). If I run CVS in bind mounted directory it fails with:

cvs [status aborted]: cannot get working directory: No such file or directory

after replacing the fallbach algorithm (which is used) with libc getcwd cvs in bind mounted dir works.
