CVS doesn't version directories. You could delete it from the repository, if
there was never anything in the directory. If there *used* to be something,
then there will be an Attic subdirectory, which likely holds valuable data
you don't want deleted.

Just use the -P option when checking out, and the empty directory will not
be created locally.
