We have noticed a problem with RCS. If you have header
information in your file and have a file "Makefile.anything", the
header info doesn't get properly commented out upon checkout. New
lines added by RCS to the header info in the file are not commented
out. The header info is in proper format via rcsit. The problem
doesn't occur if the makefile is called "Makefile" or "makefile". It
also doesn't occur for shell files (which have the same format for
comments as Makefiles) no matter what the name is.
One fix we have found is to 'rcs -c "# " Makefile.whatever'.
This will properly (for makefiles) put a comment header at the begin-
ning of every line of header info in the file. It seems reasonable
though that if RCS is smart enough to put a comment header on every
line of a shell script (no matter what the name), it could do the same
for Makefiles. If y'all have any solutions let me know.
