"rcs -kb" or "rcs -ko" should work with your case, I believe.

"ci" doesn't touch the keywords, "co" touches the keywords.
So, If you do "co -ko ..." (or "co -kb"), the file you got is exactly
same as the file you checked-in. If you do "rcs -ko ...", then default
behaviour of "co" is changed to "co -ko".
hope this helps.
