after running that 'cvs update -d -P' and running into all those troubles, i
am now trying to do a 'make cleandir' of /usr/src so i can start fresh with the

# make cleandir
cleandir ===> gnu/usr.bin/grep
rm -f
rm -f a.out [Ee]rrs mklog core *.core  grep grep.o dfa.o kwset.o obstack.o savedir.o getopt.o getopt1.o search.o stpcpy.o regex.o grepmat.o  grep.ln dfa.ln kwset.ln obstack.ln savedir.ln getopt.ln getopt1.ln search.ln stpcpy.ln regex.ln grepmat.ln grep.1 grep.cat1  
rm: grep: is a directory
*** Error code 1

'cvs update -d -P' wants gnu/usr.bin/grep/grep to be a directory and everybody
else is expecting it to be a binary.

i don't care what anyone says, this is not right at all.  i've done this before
and i've NEVER had this problem.  is there something wrong with the repository
or am i doing something brain-damaged?
