	The tarfiles contain the CVS directories, but the sup
	distributions do not appear to. If you 'kickstart' sup by
	pulling down a tarfile then sup will be unable to delete any	
	directories as the will always have a 'CVS' subdir.

	Is it possible to make the tarfiles either not include the CVS
	subdirs, or for the sup to include them?

	Also - can the script that creates the 'src' tarfiles _please_
	copy the /usr/src/Makefile into the same directory so when people
	pull down the entire directory they get everything they need!!??
