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.
Since contrib/gcc_update's default options are -Pd, which do not create
dead directories, I fall squarely in the latter camp, and so should the
rest of you. *huge grin*
Actually, -Pd only does not create *empty* directories. This directory
didn't contain any other files, but it did contain other directories,
which is why the automated tester got it.
