"-r HEAD" and "-D now" do not do what you think they should do. Instead
of checking out the most recent version from the main line, they
sometimes follows branches. I have never figured out the rules that
they uses to decide whether or not to follow a branch.
Instead of this: "cvs -q co -P -D now basesrc/usr.sbin/sendmail"
try this: "cvs -q co -P -A basesrc/usr.sbin.sendmail"
