(. .ENV-gnome; cvs -z4 get -rGNOME_STABLE gnome-libs gnome-core)

.ENV-gnome points to the DNS round-robin currently, although I have a
.ENV-fixme that points to as a backup :-)

As it turns out, I was wrong about it being every file in the module; it's
the linked modules (macros, libvfs, libart_lgpl, ...) that won't update

This is happening at home (RH5.0 with RH5.2's CVS package) and at work
(SPARC Ultra 10, Solaris 2.5.1, cvs-1.10.4).
