Here's my rendition:

cvs up | perl -nle 'print if s/^\? //' | xargs cvs add

Though xargs has trouble if you have files with wierd characters in
their names, e.g. space.

A recursive bulk cvs add is more work, as cvs update will only show that
a new directory needs to be added before showing new files under that
particular directory.

Probably easier just to run the update script a bunch of times, or start
off with a 'find -type d | xargs cvs add' to get all the dirs in first,
then the other command.
