rename .cvsignore files to .gitignore
The .cvsignore files from the legacy cvs repository tracked what files got autogenerated during various stages of the flex build. Renaming the .cvsignore files to .gitignore lets git do the same thing. git is better about letting higher level .gitignore files not-track files in lower level directories. As I work my way through the test directories, we may add additional .gitignore files from the old .cvsignore files. The po/ directory has a lot of special files used by gettext, so the patterns in po/.gitignore look very different. The doc/.gitignore file accounts for what texinfo/makeinfo do, and so it also has special patterns. The m4 directory is mainly present for autoconf's benefit, but we have to account for it so make can do the right thing. Hence, m4/.gitignore says to ignore *.m4, as counterintuitive as that may seem.
