The variable cvs-cvs-flags holds the flags, but not in a very
straight-forward way.

Create a file ~/.cvsrc and put:
cvs -z9 
in it.  I also have 
update -d
in my ~/.cvsrc.

I couldn't find references to either the cvs-cvs-flags var or the ~/.cvsrc
file in the documentation.  The .cvsrc file is a cvs thing (i.e.,
command-line cvs should use the same file), and is documented in the cvs
