Something else that is quite helpful to do is:
1. change CVS to use a tag other than $Id$, e.g. $MIT$
so that it does not conflict with other projects when
they import the MIT srcs into CVS, and
2. define a macro, sort of like:
#define MIT_RCSID(x) const char mit_rcsid = x
The actual definition ends up being substantially more
complex. Then one includes this in each .c file:
This allows ident to list the CVS versions of every
file which was used to build the binary or library in
On a side note, it makes sense to eliminate all usage of $Log$,
$Header$, $Date$, $Author$, etc. and only use $MIT$.
This is a little lower level than the original request, though.
