Hmm. When I first did the cvs update, it complained about a bunch of .man
files (a few dozen) being "in the way", so I removed them and did a
2nd update. I guess the 2nd update failed in some way and I didn't
notice it.

I redid the update and the install completed successfully.

Ah, I hadn't know about that method before - I always went down into
xfree/xc and built. Thanks for the tip.
