Thanks for the tips! Still having the same problem though...

I have changed the tag in my supfile to:
*default tag=RELENG_5_5

I then removed the directory '/usr/src/contrib/cvs' and ran cvsup again.

But when I run 'make buildworld' I still get the previous error.

===> gnu/usr.bin/cvs/contrib
sed -e 's,@CSH@,/bin/csh,' -e 's@PERL@,/usr/bin/perl,'
/usr/src/gnu/usr.bin/cvs/contrib/../../../../contrib/cvs/contrib/Makefile.in
> Makefile

"Makefile", line 15: Need an operator
make: fatal errors encountered -- cannot continue
*** Error code 1

Stop in usr/src/gnu/usr.bin/cvs.


I assume this means it is not a problem with timestamps. What is causing
this and is it easily fixed?

Nic
