fixcvsdiff modifies diff files created from the cvs diff command, where files have been added or removed. CVS tends to create diff files that patch(1) mis-interprets. The diff file must retain the lines beginning with ``Index:'' in order for the correction to work.
Keep a .bak backup file.
Print out the cvs add and cvs remove commands that must be made after applying the diff, but before running cvs commit.
