Make sure you import with the "-I !" option.  Yep,
you did.  Good.

Strange.  There is nothing unusual about these file names.

Ah hah.  The imported tree has .cvsignore files.  Hunt them
down and remove them.  Then, repeat the import.  Use the
exact same command as on the first attempt, with identical
vendor and release tags.  That will bring in the missing files
and do nothing to the already imported files.

The last two .cvsignore's seem to ignore themselves, which
is unfortunate.  You can't import them unless you remove
them, at which point you can no longer import them !
A workaround would be to rename them, repeat the import,
and go un-rename the ,v files in the repository.

An alternative would be to see if you can live without
the missing files.  Usually they are generated files that
the developers don't want in *their* repository, but they
include them in the tarballs to remove the dependency
on the tools that generates them.  If you have the tools,
you can leave them out of your repository too.

(I do hate tarballs with .cvsignore's, though.)
