If you have not already done so, the shared files should be part of some
independent module. A library with its own build script for example.
That way work on the library requires an explicit module checkout. 

Concurrent checkouts should not be a problem with or without
notification. That's the CVS way of doing thing as you know. Instead of
notification you can just assume everybody is editing the same file.
That's highly unlikely but if you assume that you will be fine IMO. 

If that's not warm and fuzzy enough you can still use notifications:

Thanks for all the help on my previous problem, now I have a new one.
working on a system where multiple developers are working on many of the

same projects and some of the files overlap. Is there some way to notify

someone when they check out a file to tell them that another user has 
checked out that file recently and not checked in the changes or to set
flag that does the same thing. I might have to write an app to do this, 
but I'm really looking more for something that already exists that will 
work with a pserver set up to preform these notifications. They can be 
e-mail notices or Windows and linux broadcast messages.

Thanks for any input,
