Use pserver. Builds out of the box, and works reliably, albeit slowly.
All source code on my NT box is maintained in a remote repository on a
Unix server. I believe I'm using 1.10.5 on the Cygwin side and 1.10.2
on all the rest of the machines.
I strongly suggest keeping all the source directory mounts binary if
you're doing a lot of development to avoid awkward problems with diffs
having CR/NL etc.

Another side benefit of client/server is that you can freely move around
the directory tree without having to muck with CVS/Repository etc files.
