In this context I don't care how perfoce does it.  I am not
going to bury the discussion of changing SCM systems in a
popt update thread.  Please stay on-topic.

If you want to do a vendor branch in CVS for the popt
resync, OK.  If you don't, that's OK too, but consider
making a symbolic tag to help the process next time.
