This was after
netbsd# cd /usr/src
netbsd# cvs update -d -P .

So I don't know what's up with that.

"I'll go do that again."

I tend to make a lost+found directory in every fs, just out of habit
(it's a carryover from systems that did NOT automagically generate lost+found
while trying to recover during fsck...and, come to think of it, they
didn't generate it after mkfs finished, either...).

[I know.  Sun automagically generated them on newfs; and BSD eventually
got around to automagically creating them upon discovering their absence
during an fsck in which it had to recover something.]

What flist entries did you have to add?
