If a 1 time only thing, just check out both branches
into different trees and diff -R.  Actually, use cvs export
to avoid the CVS files confusing diff.

That may well be the best way even if you are doing
it regularly.

To avoid needless chdeckouts, do a real cvs co
rather than an export, but modify your diff tool
to ignore CVS files. (i.e. put a wrapper around diff).
Then cvs update will pick up.
