The latest stable release is cvs 1.11.17.

The latest feature release is cvs 1.12.9.

I suggest something like the following:

  1) download cvs 1.11.17 from http://cvshome.org/
  
  wget https://ccvs.cvshome.org/files/documents/19/191/cvs-1.11.17.tar.bz2
  wget https://ccvs.cvshome.org/files/documents/19/192/cvs-1.11.17.tar.bz2.sig

  2) verify the digital signatures if possible.

  gpg cvs-1.11.17.tar.gz.sig

  3) unpack it

  bunzip2 -dc cvs-1.11.17.tar.bz2 | tar xvf -

  4) configure it

  cd cvs-1.11.17
  ./configure --prefix=/usr/local

  5) build it

  make

  6) test it. Note, you will need GNU 'id' and 'expr'. I have used GNU
  sh-utils 2.0 and GNU coreutils 5.2.1 with equal success on Solaris 8
  (aka SunOS 5.8) systems.

  make check    

  7) install it someplace where you can write the files

  make install prefix=/tmp/test-cvs-install

  8) Either manually copy /tmp/test-install files into /usr/local OR
     if you are very sure you want to do it.

  sudo make install

As for configuring inetd.conf to start pserver...
I do not recommend ever using pserver.
