this means that the files has not been 'cvs add'-ed to the repository.
this is done by control_rancid when a device is added.  it can fail for
in three cases,

1) the group was not properly added
	use bin/create_cvs
2) the device was not added properly
3) someone has been mucking with the versions in the cvs repository

fir the last two cases; remove the device from the router.db file,
run bin/do-diffs, replaced the devices in router.db and it should
work as expected upon the next run.
