I just updated...

Sure. Jlam committed that at quarter to four UTC am. I wasn't able to
get it out of anoncvs until around eight UTC *pm*. If I did a rdiff,
I got an empty result (- everything).

512     cvs -d rdiff -r1.44 -r1.46 pkgsrc/mk/compiler/
that was at 19:56 utc+1; when I piped that to patch, I ended up with an
empty file. No CVSROOT in environment. CVS/Root points to french mirror,
which should have been updated TWICE in those +12 hours due to Manuel
Bouyer to be up-to-date IF cvs chose it over the cmd-line option)

I was making cleandir before, and make CLEANDEPENDS=yes cleandir after the
update I mentioned in my other mail. Sorry for the fuzz.
