You have installed the sources, not the binaries for cvs.

Depending on what version of rpm you are using, you need to rebuild
using the appropriate command.

You may wish to read the following thread:

You might as well use Geoff's proceedure for a non-root user using
the rpmbuild command.

        Good luck,
