After cvs up -A, removal and re-checkout should not change. Do cvs up -I \! and save it. There should be no output, but you might have built files in the tree. Also from top level cvs diff -r HEAD -I \! and again output should be empty. > went on to build a distribution, and ended up at the same place - failed > the final checkflist.

I just removed ld.elf_so from my destdir and re-ran make install (via using the arch-specific nbmake in the tooldir) and it worked fine to recreate the symlink. Check that directory specificially in your checkout for not having spurious files.
