Build Automation Issues

I am in the process of fully automating the build of our application,
and have come across a couple of issues.  This application uses several

I was hoping to conditionally tag each module, by checking the exit
status of "cvs diff -r <tag_from_last_build>", but it seems to return 1
even when there are no differences (I tried "cvs diff", and it returned
zero--which makes sense because I hadn't edited any files).

Also, is there a common way to determine the previous tag name?  I was
going to put a file called ".version" in the top directory of each
module, containing nothing but the tag name.  Is this the best way to
do it?
