In the archives of the info-cvs list is an email from address@hidden
describing how to set this up, and there's a reply from
address@hidden with an additional suggestion.

Use something like this:
service cvspserver
        socket_type     = stream
        wait            = no
        user            = root
        env             = HOME=/home/pamirian/cvsroot
        server  = /usr/bin/cvs
        server_args     = -f --allow-root=/home/pamirian/cvsroot pserver

Partly, but mainly because if HOME is set, cvs tries to read ${HOME}/.cvsrc
immediately when it starts, unless you run "cvs -f ...."
