Can't be "fixed" centrally, and the whole warning is of doubtful
usefulness anyway.  CVS only cares if a file has executable bits set,
and that could be fixed manually in the repo where applicable.  N/A in
this case, obviously.  And some of the affected files above aren't even
in CVS, but the lookaside cache.

Everything else besides the x bit in the permissions depends on the
umask of whoever did the "cvs up" and/or "make".  Apply "umask 022" if
you mind the warnings.
