We have a file with extension .a in our source tree, "bin/csh/USD.doc/csh.a".
This clashes with cvs import's default ignore list and will cause trouble
for those importing NetBSD into their own repositories.

Should we change the extension on this file?  I'm not sure what .a is
meant to signify in any case.
