	After doing make in /usr/src/gnu/usr.bin/gdb, cvs update
	fails with the following message:

	   cvs [update aborted]: could not chdir to gdb: Not a directory
	make clean (which removes the file "gdb") allows cvs update to
	operate properly.

	cvs checkout NetBSD source
	cd /usr/src/usr.bin/gdb
	cvs update
	Unknown, but possibly someone once made a gdb subdirectory under
	the directory in question, then cvs deleted it. If this is the case,
	all memory of the directory could be removed from the cvs repository,
	which isn't true to the principles of software source control, but
	would at least keep cvs update from bombing when I forget to
	do make clean in the gdb directory.
