in the past there was a directory at usr.sbin/mrouted/mrouted.
when cvs does "cvs update" it tries to dig the directory, and then
removes it (by the effect of -P).

then use objdirs to split binaries/*.o files from source code tree.
clean everything up once, and run "make obj" at the
top directory. every time you run "make build", run "make obj".
