It turns out there was a couple of things going on:

$CVS_RSH was set to ssh and the particular user wasn't set up to do 
ssh authentication.  $CVS_SERVER was not set but ksh was not 
setting the remote path to /usr/local/bin.  

Once I had unset $CVS_RSH and set $CVS_SERVER to /usr/local/bin/cvs 
it started to work.  Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
