EXPLANATION: For some reason that directory existed on the mirror
server but not in the master CVS tree repository.  It was created once
but quickly deleted -- not quickly enough apparently to prevent it to
leak to the slave.  Then we did a global resync from the master to the
mirror and that wiped out the mirror version.  Good riddance.

FIX: Edit Tools/CVS/Entries and delete the line that mentions ht2html, 
then do another cvs update.
