You need to do the merges, just like the manual says.  However, you
shouldn't need to do all the individual merges, it should be sufficient
to just do a single merge between the first revision you imported and
the last revision you imported.  That will allow CVS to detect the files
that were removed along the way and mark them as dead.  Something like:

        cvs co -jstuff-1-1 -jstuff-9-16 stuff
        cd stuff
        cvs ci -m'merge'

And remember to merge after any future imports.
