And because `cvs update' can _never_ interfere with the normal
operation of timestamps without causing other problems at build time,
the alphabetical checkout retrieved getdate.c first and then retrieved
getdate.y and getdate.y was therefore newer.  This will almost always
be the case on update, though not checkout, of X.c X.y file
combinations from CVS.
