Looking at the source in conv2gdbm.c (part of the gdbm package), this
message:
   conv2gdbm.exe: dbm file not opened
is generated when "dbminit(dbm_file)" fails.  *That* happens when when
you don't have write or read access to the file.  It *could* also happen
if the files are stored on a FAT filesystem, or if you are running under
windows9x.

Please send your 'cygcheck -s -v -r' output and an 'ls -la' of
${CVSROOT}/CVSROOT to the list.
