If the head revision on the trunk is dead (and it seems it is), the RCS
file should be in the Attic, but it's not.  I don't know how that could
have happened since CVS moves the RCS file into the Attic automatically.
In any event, I think the only way to fix it is to manually move the RCS
file into the right place:

        mv /opt/cvsroot/ORIGIN/Libraries/DataArea/NumberItem/absolute.oc,v
