CVS is a major PITA when it comes to directories. I still haven't been
able to figure out how to do this, other than just logging into the
server and remove/move/rename directory directly.

That's what I recommend you doing, login to the server, cd into
/home/cvsroot/ALFS and your work there.

After you have done your work on the server, run cvs update -P to get
that directory removed from your local copy (or run rm -r dirname, but
cvs update is a good test to make sure CVS isn't confused now).
