It's easy:
sed 's|autobuild@zathras.local:/cvsroot|anoncvs@<your favorite CVS mirror here>:/cvsroot|' CVS/Root > /tmp/Root
find . -path '*/CVS/Root' -exec cp /tmp/Root {} \;

One reason I could see it to force the user to choose a CVS mirror,
instead of having all the NetBSD machines points to the master
anoncvs server by default (which cause problems when everyone rushs out
to get a security fix: the master server is so overloaded that even the
cvs mirrors can't get the fix).
