Currently viewcvs has a dep on cvs and rcs. Since viewcvs supports subversion, this should be changed to something like this:
DEPEND="|| ( (cvs rcs) subversion )"
I have tested installing viewcvs WITHOUT cvs and with subversion, and it works great.
Okay, I've changed the dependency. Can you test this, please, and let me know whether it works for you?
Had a play with net-www/viewcvs-0.9.2_p20030430-r1 tonight and viewcvs works fine with subversion for me.
Installed fine without pulling in the cvs and rcs deps.
sounds good - seems to work here happily now too.
