It's unnecessary to print one of those extra RCS template fields in
the commit log if it's been left empty.

Adding the attached script (procured from the FreeBSD project) to
CVSROOT/ will strip the empty RCS lines from the final commit log.

The following change is also required to CVSROOT/verifymsg:

Index: verifymsg

 # One thing that should be noted is the the ALL keyword is not
 # supported.  There can be only one entry that matches a given
 # repository.

I don't have access to commit to the CVSROOT/ directory, so someone
with the proper karma will have to review these changes and make the
decision to commit them.
