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.
