Indeed. I've found the real culprit is cvs(1), which doesn't tell you all
the files that are in the local filesystem but not in the repository.
Running "cvs -I\!" gives a good hint on what can really be removed (well,
except that CVS/* stuff ;).

I've found symlinks and whatnot in the xsrc tree that I've used for ages
before upgrading to 2.0, and I have no idea where they come from, but they
do break the src/x11 build.

The problem is not related to anoncvs.
