To get really offtopic: What is this repeated "make clean" for?  Don't
you have enough trust that your makefiles get the dependencies right?=20
That is what make was made for, isn't it?=20

After all, you could still put your cvs sandbox on a local filesystem
and put a symlink on it. The downside is clear: You are forced to
check in/ check out evertime you change your client machine. If you
have your personal client machine on your desk, this is okay, but in
some student pool, this may not be worth the hassle.=20

This is just an workaround, it would be nice to fix the basic problem thoug=
