I just ran cvs update (, rm -rf /usr/obj, -x distribution, and this is what I get:

checkflist ===> distrib/sets
cd /usr/src/distrib/sets &&  DESTDIR=/usr/obj/usr/src/destdir.i386 
MACHINE=i386 MACHINE_ARCH=i386  CKSUM=/usr/obj/tools/bin/nbcksum 
MAKE=/usr/obj/tools/bin/nbmake MTREE=/usr/obj/tools/bin/nbmtree 
MKTEMP=/usr/obj/tools/bin/nbmktemp PAX=/usr/obj/tools/bin/nbpax 
HOST_SH=sh  sh ./checkflist  -b

============  1 extra files  ===============
Files in DESTDIR but missing from flist.
File is obsolete or flist is out of date ?
=========  end of 1 extra files  ===========
