The .cvsignore files are used by "cvs diff".  The exclude file is used by
the "diff -X no.freeciv" command, this being the stand-alone diff.

I keep two directories on my machine (as you may infer from my patches).
One called FreecivCVS, which I keep up to date with the latest CVS.  The
other called freeciv is the diretory in which I do development.  When I
want to generate a patch, I do a local diff between the two by, e.g., "diff
-ruN -X no.freeciv FreecivCVS freeciv >some-patch-file.diff".  This is
faster than a "cvs diff -u" across my 33k modem link to the Internet :)
