Removing a directory from CVS impossible?

Unlike files, once a directory is created in CVS, it remains there
forever. Or is there a way to get rid of an existing directory in CVS?

The problem, in more detail, is the following:

We have a CVS project, that used to have a directory <project-name>/intl
for the gettext files of internationalization. However, this intl/
directory is not needed anymore, from the moment we started using
gettextize to generate intl/ from scratch (in the script).

Gettextize sweeps the entire intl/ directory empty (including intl/CVS/)
and updates it with new files. When issuing a "cvs update" we get the
following message:

$ cvs update
cvs update: in directory intl:
cvs update: cannot open CVS/Entries for reading: No such file or directory
cvs server: Updating intl

The intl/ directory is already empty in the repository, but intl/ in
the user's working directory contains the gettext files.
The only way to get rid of this annoying warning message, is to remove
the intl/ from the CVS repository, but that seems to be impossible.
Or is there a way; or any other solution to this problem?

Thanks for your help!
