For the Glasgow Haskell Compiler there is a two step checkout of the sources,
which I haven't figured out to do with the experimental CVS options in
Compile 1.1.0.

Make sure you set your CVSROOT  environment variable according to either of the remote methods above. The Approved Way to check out a source tree is as follows:

    $ cvs checkout fpconfig

You can call the fptools directory whatever you like, CVS won't mind:

    $ mv fptools directory

    $ cd directory
    $ cvs checkout ghc hslibs libraries
