When you checked out current, did you use cvs, and if so, did you
forget to use "-P"?  If so, re-run "cvs update -P".

I have a hunch that this error is caused because you have two
"rcorder" and "chown" directories in your source tree because rcorder
(and possibly chown) have moved in the source tree at some stage in
the past, and one of those directories is empty.  "cvs -d" can cause
this without "-P".
