It worked, thank you! Two things are strange, though:

1) I hadn't given the -P flag on the update to 2015Q2 because CVS's
   man page says it's implied by the -r flag. So, is the man page

2) CVS gave no special notice this time that it was removing
   directories: it just said it was "updating" them (and respective
   contents) but in fact it removed them. Very misleading.

Anyway, the local pkgsrc tree looks good now...
