I would guess the problem is at your end. AFAIK, the repository does not
store any absolute paths. I've just checked out a complete copy without
problems. You could try deleting your copy of the gccsdk tree and
possibly your .cvspass file, and do a clean checkout.
Alternatively cd / ; grep -r /usr/locel/ *
