You want ghc-5-02-branch to get the latest code on the branch.  The
ghc-5-02 tag corresponds to GHC 5.02 exactly.

Here you checked out the the latest ghc and hslibs from the HEAD, when
you really want the branch versions of these modules.  Use either 'cvs
update -d', or 'cvs checkout -rghc-5-02-branch' instead.

Don't worry too much about this: CVS can be pretty confusing at times.
