The first "cvs checkout -l" command goes much faster if you
leave out the "-r <tag>".  Like this:
        cvs -d ${CVSROOT} login                 # password anoncvs
        mkdir /var/tmp/foo
        cd /var/tmp/foo
        cvs -u -d ${CVSROOT} checkout -l src    # this is reasonably fast
        cd src
        cvs -u update -A -rnetbsd-1-6 -dP       # this is slow

If the first "cvs checkout -l" fails, then the directory structure
needed by the subsequent "cvs update" will probably not be created
