Here's a (simpler?) alternative way from the OpenBSD anoncvs WWW manual:

       NOTE: if you are updating a source tree that you initially
       fetched from a different server, or from a CD, you must add the -d
       $CVSROOT options to cvs. You must also set the CVS_IGNORE_REMOTE_ROOT 
       environment variable.

I have no problem with that.
