This directory exists on a clean anonCVS checkout, cvs co, followed
with a cvs update -Pd.  Done AFTER Debbie's post, on a new machine.

I verified Debbie's results, and the solution I suggested (2

subdir) got me most of the way there.  The second incantation was
needed to cope with a problem in the ctest directory.
