Well, sort of.  That subtree is relatively new, and is in fact there in the 
repository.  But it's not in the 1.5.9 tarballs and there are no 1.5.9 tags 
on the files in that tree.

If I had to guess, I'd guess that 1.5.9 was tagged with 'cvs tag' (not 
rtag) in a sandbox that was missing this directory.

In any event, the change you propose should work, though it means the 
'afssettings' program won't get built on MacOS X, and the fs_conv_26 
program won't get built on Solaris.
