autom4te.caches are not supposed to be in CVS and to be in .cvsignore.

The coverhd.h and the prog-gnat.m4 cases would require to be looked in.

These are supposed to be in CVS and not to be in .cvsignore.

They once had been in .cvsignore and have been removed from .cvsignore

These are supposed to be in .cvsignore and not in CVS.

This is dead code. rtemsrpms is dead.

This code should be removed.

No idea about this one.

I'd assume you to be facing issue with your VCS and/or your VCS import process.

At least some of the files you refer to above have either been in .cvsignore
and removed from .cvsignore, while others have been missing.

Others would require to look into.

None of these messages is supposed to be ignored, but also no idea what is
going on for you (I can't reproduce this issue).

2.65 is known to suffer from serious bugs. I haven't notice them to hit rtems
yet, but I strongly recommend to upgrade to 2.67 (2.66 was a "brown paper bag",
entirely unusable).

BTW1: Which OS are you using? Wasn't it you who once mentioned to be facing
issues with BSD's shell?

I am not seeing any of the issues your observe, which makes me think you may
also be facing more shell related issues.

BTW2: There recently was a CVS tag screw up.
Try cvs up -dP -A (on CVS-HEAD) rsp. try a fresh checkout.
