There wasn't one.  Thanks for the response.

The reason for it was that the repository had been moved to a new location,
and so everything had a new and different time associated with it.  Some
files had no local changes; others had only local changes (i.e., CVS was
working properly).  For the ones that had both local and remote changes, I
was able to merge the two changes by doing

        cvs update -j <early revision> -j <later but not current revision>
