well, i was having trouble doing a 'make build' and saw lots of old posts on my
problem but never any solutions, so i thought i'd just re-cvs a newer -current
and see if it was one of those problems that just "go away" after someone 
notices what they have done and fixes it quick.

fine, that's cool.  except i come back to this:

cvs [update aborted]: could not chdir to usr.sbin/mrouted/mrouted: Not a directory

this happened for ktrace and something else in usr.bin and what it turns out
to be is that usr.sbin/mrouted/mrouted is a binary (the one to be installed
after the make build is done) but cvs wants it to be a directory that contains
a CVS directory and nothing else.

that can't possible be right.  or am i completely being dense here?

cvs login
cd /usr/src
cvs update -d -P
