That means that your current directory has a CVS subdirectory, but it
does not contain the files that CVS expects to be there.  Either that
directory was created by something other than CVS, something deleted
the files that it is supposed to contain, or you're trying to do that
add in a repository directory instead of a checked out working
directory.  Based on the path name, I suspect the latter.
