Those instructions are for windows or unix:

The CVSNT mailer does not require any changes to loginfo.

The whole 2.5 series of CVSNT releases has a 3GL interface to the server
triggers (like loginfo).  We wrote audit and e-mail triggers as
'examples' of what could be done using them - it's a lot more powerful
than the script triggers and also does not require users to install
large packages like python or perl on their servers with the inherant
security risks.  

I was also hoping that these 'simple' triggers would find a ready
audience of programmers willing to expand them and contribute the
improvements since it's a lot more 'accessible' than the CVSNT base code
- but unfortunately that has not happened.
