These directories were briefly checked into CVS because of a mistake of
mine.  I've since deleted them from the repository, but for one reason
or another CVS kept checking out the empty directory, or perhaps, more
specifically, creating admin files for them when they already existed in
the workspace, despite -P being passed to cvs up.  This is probably a
bug but I never researched it fully enough to document it.

If you delete the .deps/CVS dir once and remove the .deps entry from
CVS/Entries, you shouldn't experience any further problems.
