[rancid] no CVS directory created for new groups

I recently migrated to rancid 3.9.  I created 3 groups initially and it is all working fine, but when I added two more, I was not getting any emails for the changes.  I tested email to the alias, that is working.  Looked through the archives and it  appears to be related to not running rancid-cvs after adding the group to rancid.conf.    I can run rancid-run and it created the var/GROUP/configs dir and saves the config, but it is not keeping track of differences.  When I run

cvs  log -bSh router.db

I get

cvs log: No CVSROOT specified!  Please use the `-d' option
cvs [log aborted]: or set the CVSROOT environment variable.

I ran

rancid-cvs -V -f /opt/rancid/etc/rancid.conf

but it is still not creating the GROUP in /opt/rancid/var/CVS.

Any suggestions?
