Spiro is correct.  To this I add:  if you want to repair your
import just *repeat* it, this time with the -I! option.  Be sure
and use the same release tag as in the initial, partial, import.

Oh, and this assumes that you do want the .o file in your repository.
If you just want the directory but not the file, that can't be done.
CVS won't import empty directories.  Workarounds would be
    1)  modify your build system to create the directory
        after checkout, if it is missing;
    2)  add an empty .dummy file before the import, so the
        directory is no longer empty.
