In other words, when I "cvs checkout DevCode", I want to see SieveCalc and XXlib
modules under DevCode/PrimeSieve.

That's a tricky thing to do, it's much simpler if you add the library at
the top level instead (i.e., DevCode/XXlib).  That's just:

        DevCode DevCode &XXlib

If you really want it at a lower level, you have to define a special
module for it that specifies the directory to check out into:

        DevCodeXXlib -d PrimeSieve/XXlib XXlib
        DevCode DevCode &DevCodeXXlib

Ah bless you - that is exactly what I want. I tried several variations on this but I couldn't figure out the "-d" syntax.

Thanks very much!
