As I understand it correctly, cvs (the binary you build) is the server also. 
If you want access a cvs repository via pserver protocol (port 2401) you need 
in your /etc/inetd.conf something like the following line (from my system, 
SuSE 7.0):
  cvspserver stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/bin/cvs \             
     --allow-root=/home/cvsroot pserver

You can find more information under

Section 2.9 remote repositories.

Hope this helps.
