Doesn't "cvs add" recurse?  The procedure I remember goes like this:

    mkdir emptydir
    cd emptydir
    cvs import -mdummy path/to/project/root DUMMY dummy
    cd ..
    rmdir emptydir

The import just creates an empty directory in the repository.  The
import message, vendor branch name and release tag are lost, there
aren't any files to hold them!  Add the new directory to your modules

    cvs checkout CVSROOT
    cd CVSROOT
    echo projectname            path/to/project/root >> modules
    cvs commit
    cd ..
    cvs release -d CVSROOT

    cvs checkout projectname
    cd projectname
    : copy your source tree to where you are
    : Hmmm... you may need to cvs add the directories first
    find . -type d -print | xargs cvs add
    : Darn!  I could have sworn that "cvs add" recursed once the
    : directories were in, but I can't make it work on my
    : (admittedly old) cvs.
    : Here's a find incantation to add all the files.
    find . -type d -name CVS -prune -o -type f -print | xargs cvs add
    : all the files are added
    cvs commit

The files will show up at revision 1.1.

The second "find" works by 1) excluding the CVS directories from the
search, and 2) listing all the files found elsewhere.  Works great in a
unixoid environment.  If your're stuck in Windows, well that's tough.

So it's work, but I wouldn't call a pair of one-liners a huge
scripting job.

If your files have spaces in their names, use
find ... -print0 | xargs -0 ...
