I'm sorry, I was somehow convinced this was fixed, but you're right, it isn't.
And I see the reason (he did find -name CVS | xargs rm -rf before creating the
source tarball and version.sh requires the presence of CVS/Entries). I'll point
it out to Christian (Cc'd) and hopefully he'll fix it either by keeping
CVS/Entries or by patching version.sh.
