You can not cvs update a tree with objects and binaries lying around. Do a
make cleandir before the cvs update and next time use one of the several
variants of obj.dirs available. This will place the the objects in a safe
subdirectory (or completely outside the source tree). That way they don't
interfere with cvs (or other archs build from the same tree).
