*sigh* The files were removed from HEAD but still exist in RELENG_5 and
children (like RELENG_5_4). What you are experiencing is a limitation
of CVSweb: files in the Attic are not handled well (the newest release,
3.0.5, doesn't do this correctly either). I recently started working on
CVSweb and this is one of the things on my TODO list.
I'm not sure why the 5.4-RC1 src didn't include them; perhaps files are
excluded from the src depending on which arch the release is targeting?
These particular files are only used for sparc64.
