[Mspgcc-users] Building the MSPGCC toolchain: CVS checkout

I'm having a lot of trouble with CVS checkout methods which used to work
If I follow the online manual and use:

triffid msp430 # export
triffid msp430 # export CVS_RSH=ssh
triffid msp430 # cvs login

Then hit <enter> at the password prompt, the result always seems to be a

Logging in to :pserver:anonym***@*vs.mspgcc.sourceforge.net:2401/cvsroot/mspgcc
CVS password:
cvs : connect to cvs.mspgcc.sourceforge.net(
failed: Connection timed out
triffid msp430 #

But if I use a direct checkout command with the -d construct:

triffid msp430 # cvs -z3
-d:pserver:anonym***@*vs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/mspgcc co jtag

I usually get a quick and correct response:

cvs checkout: Updating jtag
U jtag/Basic_Types.h

If I use the above construct in a bash script, each co command excites a

cvs checkout: warning: skipping invalid entry in password file at line 1

and this is *sometimes* followed by an immediate abort:

cvs : end of file from server (consult above messages if any)

This makes it difficult to write a workable script to update the toolchain. Can
anyone give
me a clue as to what's going on here? Does anyone have a working script to get
the CVS
components from sourceforge?
