in the project have the correct permissions on checkout; this only affects
two directories.  How can I fix them?

You need to do a chmod +x on the ,v files in the repository itself. Easy to do if it's directly accessible, harder if remote, but I'm not aware of any other way to do this. CVS doesn't version file permissions, just copies them from the repository file.
