That's just version skew in your source tree.
Most likely what's happened is this:
1. developer commits change to tree
2. anoncvs syncs change
3. developer commits change to sets in distrib/sets/lists
4. you anoncvs update
so, even though the change in `3.' is in the master cvs repo, it
hasn't propagated to the anoncvs server yet.
When you get "flist errors", try cvs updating again and=20
building again. If you still have problems after a few hours
and you have cvs updated your sources very recently, just send
a short message to current-users with the files that are
missing or extra as a reminder.
I think people are just unlucky when they cvs update to
get such version skew.
Try cvs updating again when

They haven't been added to the lists yet; thanks for the reminder.
