CVS processes one ignore file for each subdirectory. Patterns
are separated by whitespace and only match files in the same
directory. Since FILE can be a relative filename with leading
diretories, FILE is expanded against DIRECTORY to determine the
correct absolute filename. The directory name of this path is
then used to determine the location of the ignore file. The base
