I'm not sure I understand your question. I do a 'cvs checkout' of the
tree, and then do a 'cvs import -d -ko -I \! -I CVS netbsd netbsd
netbsd-yyyymmdd'. So there are never any distfiles in my imported
tree, or any .os or anything else.
I actually put distfiles outside of pkgsrc and symlink it. Probably I
should use a mk.conf variable instead.

Sorry, I didn't realize you couldn't ignore the .cvsignore from within
What I do is (manually) put
in /usr/pkgsrc/CVS/Entries, and this causes cvs to descend into wip on
cvs update, and it correctly uses the new CVSROOT.
