Thanks everyone for the feedback... I did have a lengthy explanation 
of my solution, but IE decided that I didn't need it anymore, and 
it's gone now.  Regarding my CVS problem, I suspect an issue with the 
shell, but can't say for sure at this time.  In short:

Running CVS 1.11 on FreeBSD 4.1.1.  Shell is tcsh.

Does not work:

loginfo: ^Reckoning (date; cat; (sleep 2; cd /www/perl_lib; cvs -q 
update -d) &) >> $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/updatelog 2>&1


loginfo: ^Reckoning echo "Updating Reckoning Perl Module 
Directory"; /www/bin/ &
# built to get around tcsh freakishness

sleep 2
cd /www/perl_lib
cvs -q update -d >> $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/updatelog 2>&1

I should also point out that neither solution works on SunOS 5.6, 
running CVS 1.08 and ksh.  I'll hit that harder on Monday.
