anoncvs.html: tell reader to use -d if updating first time from tgz

Solene Rapenne
Hi

in anoncvs.html, if the user choose to use tgz sources instead of a
checkout, the update examples won't work because no cvs server will be
set without passing -d parameter to the cvs command.

Not sure about the wording, if a good english speaker can word it
better, go on :)

nand1 from irc told me it's already written later in the page.

If you are updating a source tree that you initially fetched
from a different server, or from a tar file, you <b>must</b>
add the <em>-d [cvsroot]</em> option to cvs.


not sure if this could be moved under "Updating an existin tree", this
would make more sense to tell this before people need it
