I'd call that a bug :-)

How about:

if test x"${1}"x = x"--nostdflags"x; then
    set -- -P -d ${1+"$@"}

then call cvs as:

cvs -q update ${1+"$@"}

Then you could call:

contrib/egcs_update -r egcs_latest_snapshot


contrib/egcs_update -A

or even:

contrib/egcs_update --nostdflags -P -r egcs_1_1_branch gcc/testsuite
