This happened the other day while I was importing an opennms drop.  The
solution is the "-I !" option, which resets the ignore list for the
import command.

For your situation (where you have already imported part of the code),
you can fix this omission as follows:

* cd down to the directory that contains the core directory, 
* explicitly import core with the -I ! option to the appropriate spot
under the repository root.

E.g. if you have dir1/dir2/core, you can

 %cvs import .../repository [ tags] dir1  # ignores the core dir - oops
  # fix this
 %cd dir1/dir2
 %cvs import -I '!' .../repository/dir1/dir2 [tags] core
