Sorry for the delay, I kinda got sucked into other things for a bit.

With this patch the cvsup mirror on my test sparc64 64-bit time_t
machine seems to behave much better.  I'm seeing what I would expect
to see in the cvsup.log files now instead of it saying that it needed
to rsync virtually every file in the repo.


I'm going to nuke the repo on this machine and have it re-initialize
from scratch to make sure it has nothing bad in it from when I used
it to make the current snapshot ISO.  Once that's done it should be
ready to make a new snapshot ISO that contains the real cut-over to
64-bit time_t.  We're still on for this week, right?  :-)
