Problem with CVS under cygwin - file make:

If there is a better location for this question, please let me know. Thanks.

I'm trying to retrieve NetBSD-current using CVS under cygwin. I use the following command lines:

$ export CVS_RSH="ssh"
$ export CVSROOT=""
$ cvs checkout -A -P src

Everything seems to be running ok, until I get the following error message:

cvs [checkout aborted]: cannot make directory src/compat/lib/libm/make:: No such file or directory

I think the problem is that the directory in question has a ":" at the end of the name (i.e., it is "src/compat/lib/libm/make:"), which I suppose Windows is objecting to. I scrounged through the web-based CVS repository, and there is, in fact, a directory with that name, though there is nothing in it that I could see. But I don't know how to make cvs skip that directory or to keep on going anyway.

Any ideas on how to get around this?

Thanks - Don
