CVS is quite adept at handling directory trees as what it terms
"repositories".  RCS, for better or worse, only operates on a
file-at-a-time.  CVS began actually as a suite of tools that used RCS.
You can use general unix commands to give you the functionality you want,
for instance:

find . -type d -exec mkdir RCS {} \;
 # this creates RCS directories in all subdirectories including the
 # current directoroy (".")

find . -type f ! -name '*,v' -exec ci {} \;
 # this checks-in with the RCS ci command every file in the directory
 # tree that doesn't end in comma-v (",v"), which are of course the names
 # of any existing RCS files.

hope this helps.
