That's because "common" is the name of the file providing the

Did you using the raw cvs2svn distributed with Subversion as I
described, instead of the prepackaged /usr/bin/cvs2svn?

There's nothing to be suspicious about: rcsparse is a library.
Formerly, softwares A and B (ViewCVS and cvs2svn) both depended on the
library. Then software A lost its dependency, in favor of something
newer. But software B still depends on it. Softwares A and B do not
depend on each other.

This is why we distribute the required version of rcsparse with
cvs2svn. That way we know cvs2svn will get the right version.

(Of course, I'm not saying that cvs2svn should never upgrade its
rcsparse dependency, merely that we *haven't* upgraded yet.)

Same suggestion I made before :-).
