We're seeing more questions from new users about how to build the server on channel #netrek. Apparently they are going to places like and and d/l Vanilla-2.9pl8.tar.gz. As a result, the newer users keep falling into the 's/stdargs.h/varargs.h' trap.
References I see there cite CVS servers, which according to my current information should follow what was written on E.g. 

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous at login
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous at co -P modulename


If we could have these web references updated to reflect current practices that would be a great help.
