Don't know what could have gone wrong with your checkout, but

	cd xsrc/xfree/xc/programs/Xserver/hw/xfree86/
	cvs update -A

just pulled the file down for me. If you're afraid you might be missing
something else, you could "cvs update -A" at the top, then "make Everything",
and "make install", or else

	cd xsrc
	make build USE_XF86_4=YES UPDATE=yes

which is almost the same thing, except that it also rebuilds and
reinstalls in "contrib"  and "local".
