What is the preferred method for pulling source from CVS in an ebuild? I'm trying to 
modify the madwifi-driver ebuild to pull from CVS instead of a specific snapshot tarball. 
I add the following to the ebuild:

inherit cvs



When I try to emerge it, I get:

/usr/sbin/ line 37: cd: /var/tmp/portage/madwifi-driver-cvs-0.1/work/madwifi: No 
such file or directory
mv: cannot stst '': No such file or directory
sed: can't read /var/tmp/portage/mdwifi-driver-cvs-0.1/temp/ No such file or 
 >>> Source unpacked.
make: *** No rule to make target `clean'. Stop.
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.

What did I do wrong?
