One thing worth looking at is that you haven't ended up with any conflict
files in your build tree. The files CVS uses to resolve conflicts are all
named .#, so the file for mpeg.c would be .#mpeg.c<version info>. If any
of these files (usually hidden because they start with (dot)) exist, the
"real" file (mpeg.c in the example) could have strange stuff in it which
will cause failures. I had a build a while ago with ata.c mangled in this
way which caused Rockbox to crash with an error on bootup.

From your top-level directory where you have your CVS tree, type:
find . -name '.#*' -ls

If there are any files like this, you have some editing/deleting and cvs
updateing again to do!
