I'm pretty sure the correct way to do this is:

    Copy output.c,v from ext/standard/ to main/
    'cvs remove output.c' from ext/standard/ in the HEAD branch
    Update all affected Makefile's, etc. and commit them to HEAD

That should preserve the file's history and retain compatibility
with old versions / branches.
