darwin-bootstrap-20011221.tar.gz (the list archive led me to it).

Not that I know of. Also, the OS X install documentation says something 
to the effect of "Use HFS+ unless you think you know you need FFS", 
which means lots of people will use HFS+. :-)

I looked further, and that directory doesn't exist!

% pwd
% ls | grep -i '^CVS$'
% ls CVS
CVS          Entries      MESSAGE      PLIST        Repository   distinfo
DESCR        Entries.Log  Makefile     README.html  Root         patches

Looks like devel/CVS (metadata) got extracted first, and then devel/cvs 
(package) got extracted into the same directory because it seemed like 
the right name. Ha ha, we're in wacky HFS+ Land!
