I believe it is possible, provided you configure Cygwin to use DOS line
endings when you install CVS.  (There may be a way to specify DOS line
endings at run-time, too; I don't know a whole lot about Cygwin). 
Conversely, WinCVS comes with a command-line CVS; you can just use it
directly (by adding the WinCVS directory to your PATH) rather than using
the Cygwin version.
