Sounds like you do not have /usr/local/bin in your path. Try to type
./cvs when you are in the /usr/local/bin dir. In unix/linux it does
not help to be in the directory where the command is if you do not
have it in your path. when you type ./cvs, the ./ tells the command
preprocessor to look for the command in the current directory.
To check if you have /usr/local/bin in your path, you can type "echo
$PATH" on your command line. If you do not have it in your path, you
need to tell us which shell you are using. To find this out, type
