By undefining RCSINIT, you are depending on the default behavior of
the rcs programs. But that isn't what we want. The behavior of CVS
is more clearly defined than that behavior of RCS. Undefining RCSINIT
only means that the environment override is disabled. It is more
correct to explictly declare the desired behavior which is to use the
,v log files. On DOS/Windows, for instance, the default behavior
(used to be) is to use the RCS directory method. Undefining RCSINIT
will not fix the script in that case.

Cheers.
