In the past, I consistently ran into conflicts.  So now I always
remove them before updating.  I evaluate this expression:

     (cd "/usr/local/src/emacs/")
     (shell-command "rm /usr/local/src/emacs/lisp/cus-load.el" nil nil)
     (shell-command "rm /usr/local/src/emacs/lisp/loaddefs.el" nil nil)
     (cvs-update "/usr/local/src/emacs/" nil))

I don't know whether removing the files from the source CVS will make
more trouble than leaving them.  If they are left in, then it would
help to mention the possibility of removing them before updating.
