Just following up on Jim's comment:

You may want to consider CVSNT Server (GPL, free, open source, 
Linux/Windows/Mac/Unix support) and use -kB option for binary files (it stores 
a binary diff rather than the entire binary image for each revision).

For more info contact the CVSNT newsgroup:

Generally source code generated by windows programmers can be stored in ASCII 
(-ko) or Unicode (-ku) format more efficiently than binary (-b or -kB), however 
if you want to version images, PDF's, or even EXE/DLL/CPL files then -kB may be 
the best option.
