Thanks Martin.  It's a good start, but not all that I was looking for.  By
using the "-d" option, what I'm doing is "front-loading" the naming
architecture.  In other words, anytime I use module amp1, it will be under a
directory tools  (i.e.: "cvs co amp1" will result in "tools/amp1").  Another
example:  along with module mod is module othermod, which has a definition
of "othermod &amp1".  It will automaticly be placed in a directory called
"othermod/tools/amp1".  I may not want it there.

Is there a way to "back-load" where the ampersand module will be included?
For example, to be able to say that in module mod, include module amp1 in
the location mod/tools, and for module othermod, include module amp1 in
location othermod/loadbuild?

I suppose another word to describe what I'm trying to do is make a link to
another module.  In ClearCase parlance, I'd be making a link (at a location
of my choosing) to another vob (equivalent to a module).
