I have an up-to-date flist and obsolete.mi of exactly the same time
that `cvs -q update -dP` put them in the src tree.
This proves my point -- the two lists need to be better coordinated.
The build process depends upon it.
That somebody may or may not have fixed the problems several hours (or
a day or two) later is beside the point.
Folks are checking in changes without running build.sh to ensure that
everything works for everybody else.
