buildfarm never does make distclean. It operates on a copy which it 
removes at the end of the run.

What's happening here is that cvs actually creates the directory and 
then later prunes it when it finds it is empty. Run strace on "cvs 
update" and then look for pg-config, or examine src/bin/CVS/Entries.Log 
and you should see what's going on. So we'd have to put the sleep inside 
cvs ...
