Eric Blake just told me that in fact git-cvspserver silently does not
support "update -D" and so this technique actually does the wrong
thing.   I guess findutils will need to move to obtaining the current
gnulib via git.   It's slightly disappointing that this introduces an
extra dependency on git for people checking the findutils code out of
CVS.  Details at http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/index.php?21568
