What happened was, I prematurely created directories named libfeutil

CVS is to go into the repository and rmdir it by hand. Since I never
checked anything into these directories, I thought this would be
harmless, but it seems I was mistaken.
Yes, it's not harmless. There's no safe way to delete a directory in
CVS, the only solution is to just take care when creating them in the
first place, or to not worry too much about dead directories.
There's now a libcpp and libcpp/include which may get the same
treatment, because Ben wants it called libpp. (I'd really appreciate
some opinions on what this directory *should* be called. It is mostly
cpplib, but it's getting a number of pieces of common functionality
too, like line-map.c and hashtable.c.)
I think that libcpp is a fine name, since this is the directory for the
library of the C preprocessor.
