It is needed for me (cvs-1.11):

(12:43) geo-karim% cvs -d :pserver:cvs@megrez.math.u-bordeaux.fr:/home/megrez/cvsroot login
(Logging in to cvs@megrez.math.u-bordeaux.fr)
CVS password:
(12:43) geo-karim% cvs checkout pari
cvs checkout: No CVSROOT specified!  Please use the `-d' option
cvs [checkout aborted]: or set the CVSROOT environment variable.

This is intentional: the point was that 'make dobench' would run the bench
without recompiling anything (in particular, if a single binary is present,
without running two sets of identical tests). Useful when you want to run
quick regression tests [OK, we still don't have a decent regression test,
but still...].

This is an unfortunate side effect. I've removed the dobench dependencies,
and copy-pasted the corresponding commands in the relevant targets.
