At least recent CVS can merge removal of files (and addition of files
which is deleted in past). The point is using exact release tag
instead of specifing date. i.e:
cd src; cvs import ... NetBSD/src NetBSD NetBSD-1997Feb15
cd src; cvs import ... NetBSD/src NetBSD NetBSD-1997Feb17
cvs checkout -jNetBSD-1997Feb15 -jNetBSD-1997Feb17 NetBSD/src
# removed files during Feb15 and Feb17 are marked as removed.
cd NetBSD/src; cvs commit -m 'NetBSD-current 1997Feb17 is merged'
# commit the removal.
# yes, it requires more disk space and cpu times...:).
