Yes, but then you end up doing a clean build, because it will also
delete the *.o files, etc.  I don't think there's a concept of
deleting files that were there yesterday but aren't there today.

-d means something different, it's about which directory to work in. I
notice that I've set a default arg of -Pd, but it's not documented in
my version of cvs as far as I can tell; maybe that's what you're
thinking of?
