What does `cvs status'' say about the missing files?  If this was just a
"plain" checkout (not on a branch), then the problem is almost certainly
that the files are in the Attic when they should not be (there were some
bugs in old releases of CVS that prevented it from moving files out of
the Attic under certain unusual circumstances).  Manually moving the
files out of the Attic will resolve the problem.
