There's a typo in the above, it should be ag-media, not agmedia.

Using the CVS that comes with Mac OS 10.4, I just did a checkout now, 
although I get that warning message, it proceeds with the checkout:

$ export CVSROOT=":pserver:anonymous at cvs.mcs.anl.gov:/cvs/fl"
$ cvs co -r osx-aqua ag-media
cvs checkout: warning: cannot open /cvs/fl/CVSROOT/val-tags read/write: 
Permission denied
cvs checkout: Updating ag-media
U ag-media/AGQuickStart.txt
U ag-media/make-ag-rpm
U ag-media/make-ag-vic-rpm
U ag-media/rat-build
U ag-media/vic-build
