If this works, you can save yourself some trouble by using cvs admin.
It will run the rcs command on all the files for you.

However, I suspect that the above command will only make NEWTAG
a synonym for the *tip* of branch OLDTAG.  If that's true, your only
recourse is to edit the ,v files !  Use a sed or perl script.
Double-backup that repository !
