There isn't any need to rename the directory. Which is good, because
CVS doesn't allow renaming directories; you have to "cvs remove" all
of the files from the old directory, "cvs add" the new directory and
all of the files which it contains, then "cvs commit" both. And by
doing this, you lose the history.

For point 3, you need to do something like:

	cvs add display/d.m/script
	cd display/d.m/script
	cvs add *.*
	cvs commit

I'd suggest leaving r.univar alone; simply adding r.univar to
scripts/Makefile should have been sufficient.
