Thank you so much, Eric. Your solution makes perfect sense to me. Being a 
system administrator and not a full-time programmer, I forgot about the 
usefulness of make.

Thanks, again.

You'd organize it as:

Then write a top-level Makefile (or similar) containing an
"install" target to copy everything to where it needs to be in
production.  In other words, pretty much the way the CVS
distribution itself is organized.

N.B.: <project-root> isn't any particular directory.  By default
it will have the same name as the CVS module (probably "prds" in
your case), but each developer is free to override that by giving
their working directory any name they like, and to put it
anywhere they like.
