The cvsup config you used downloaded the CVS history, from which you check
out a local copy of the source.  This is needed if you want to get old
versions of files and so on.

You probably don't want to do that.  Use
/usr/share/examples/cvsup/DragonFly-src-supfile instead.  That'll give you
the final, current versions of the files.  See also:
