Hmm.  It is there in the anoncvs directory.  However, there was a
point in time when it was missing.  Is is possible that you used some
option for cvs that set sticky tags or dates?  What happens if you use
cvs update -A?

BTW, it is probably better to report problems with the 2.1.x sources
to the octave-maintainers mailing list.
