Hi all,

Trying to checkout the netbsd-1-6 branch from a CVS tree (from via CVSup a few hours ago) fails:

$ cvs -d /usr/local/NetBSD/cvsup/cvs  checkout -P -rnetbsd-1-6 src
U src/gnu/dist/gcc/vfprintf.c
U src/gnu/dist/gcc/xcoffout.c
U src/gnu/dist/gcc/xcoffout.h
cvs checkout: INSTALL already exists but is not a directory
cvs [checkout aborted]: cannot make directory INSTALL: File exists

$ file src/gnu/dist/gcc/INSTALL
src/gnu/dist/gcc/INSTALL: GNU Info text

Checking the CVS tree shows an INSTALL directory and an INSTALL
file in the Attic:

-r--r--r--  1 giles  src  111032 May  4 08:38 src/gnu/dist/gcc/Attic/INSTALL,v
drwxr-xr-x  2 giles  src     512 Jul 26 15:44 src/gnu/dist/gcc/INSTALL shows the same files.

Any CVS wizard able to comment?
