There should not be a need to do a complete checkout ever.  I never do.
 I only use "cvs update -dP".

It is very hard to get all make dependencies right so that make always
does the right thing.  Therefore, it is sometimes necessary to recompile
everything, or at least everything in a particular subproject.  The
easiest way to do that is by completely removing the build directory (in
the default setup of the conf.bash script that would be the Linux
subdirectory on Linux and the CYGWIN subdirectory on Cygwin).  You can
also run ./de-bootstrap, but that is also rarely needed (as long as you
do run ./bootstrap when any *.ag file changes).
