:    Ok, working on it.  Grr, that thing is getting more fragile.
:    It's probably an incremental update failure of the CVS repo.

    It should be fixed now (it fixed itself this morning, I didn't have
    to do anything).  The script was failing trying to do the incremental
    cvs checkout.

    e.g. from the logs:

U cvs-master/emulators/ucon64/patches/patch-af
U cvs-master/net/xymon/PLIST
U cvs-master/net/xymon/
cvs checkout: move away `cvs-master/print/LPRng/Makefile'; it is in the way
C cvs-master/print/LPRng/Makefile
cvs checkout: move away `cvs-master/print/LPRng-core/MESSAGE'; it is in the way
C cvs-master/print/LPRng-core/MESSAGE
... (repeat a hundred times) ...

    I'm not sure why this happens.  CVS somehow gets confused over what
    files are in the repo and what files are not, possibly due to catching
    an update in the middle or surgery done in the master cvs repo.

    This time it fixed itself.  Sometimes I have to blow the checkout away
    and let it re-checkout everything over again.

    Theoretically I could do a fresh rm -rf and checkout every time, but
    that seems really wasteful of crater's disk and time.  It already takes
    crater between 1 and 2 hours to run the cvs->git script so for now I
    am still leaving it set to do an incremental checkout.
