To reply to myself:

In addition, I should have pointed out that we DO NOT use the official 
CVS repo on PPC, and thus need to configure it differently. So being 
able to pull the official CVS by ABS is by no means the preferred method 
of fixing the problem. ;p

If you have a working patch for pacman that uses:

CVS_ROOT=:pserver:anonymous at cvs.archlinuxppc.org:/home/cvs-{arch,current,extra}

instead, please forward it to us.
