And, it is very helpful if someone can say

applying the following to pkgsrc-2020Q3 results in a thunderbird that

  cd pkgsrc/mail/thunderbird
  cvs up -j1.X1 -j1.Y1 foo.c
  cvs up -j1.X2 -j1.Y2 bar.c

which is much crisper description of the fix than vague statements not
so easily translated to an exact patch.
