For the last time, what part of _freshly checked out sources_ needs
special explanation? Before that needs even more explanation, I'll even
take it further: the test should be done on local repo copy first
before 'real' one.

Even without an extensive test above, a simple 'cvs update' before
commit can be used to reveal all files that probably should either be
added to CVS or removed. It isn't hard to spot all files prefixed with
'?' in cvs output.

The original breakage in -current was caused by a bug that simple
compile test would have found. The compile test that clearly had not
been tried. Between that and RELENG6 breakage I find it hard to believe
that due attention has been paid doing ipfilter update work.
