Nope, does not do the trick:

boxster 7: ls
CVS/  foo.src*
boxster 8: touch adfad .adf werwe
boxster 9: cvs add
Usage: cvs add [-k rcs-kflag] [-m message] files...
        -k      Use "rcs-kflag" to add the file with the specified kflag.
        -m      Use "message" for the creation log.
(Specify the --help global option for a list of other help options)

However, there is no harm in trying to add a file, which is already in the
repo. CVS will not let you do it anyway.

I have mulitple cron jobs taking database schema snapshots and checking them
into CVS. The script pretty much does 'cvs add *'. I just ignore errors
related to files already in CVS.

There is no need to do this.  Just do "cvs add" with no other 
arguments and it will add all new files.
