Thanks!  That helped me confirm that the build failure I was experiencing
was a result of one of the source files getting updated, while another
was unchanged locally when it should have been updated as well.

But that wasn't quite what I wanted to ask, so let me see if I can
state my wishes more clearly, seeing that just as with `sup', if I
were to ftp-mirror changed files, I'd have to download the whole file
for any change/tag/append/delta...

Other than `sup' and scanning the ftp tree, what options are available
(outside of unofficial `cvsup') for me, on a pay-per-minute dial-up,
to keep my NetBSD tree of RCS source files up-to-date?  (Oh, as an
on-demand option, so `CTM' isn't ideal, if I want to go on-line once
a week for ten minutes and bring my CVS repositories up-to-date...)
