Best way to find files added/changed/removed between tags

I am looking for the best way to generate lists of files that have been
modified, added or removed in a directory between 2 revision tags. So
far I have been using "cvs rdiff" to generate output which I then
parse to extract the lists.

However, I now have directories that contain some large binary files, and
rdiff takes a very long time to run. Apparently rdiff checks out all the
files for each of the tags - even binary files. This seems excessive for
the summary information I need and appears to be the bottleneck.

I am wondering whether I am not approaching this the right way and if
there is an alternative cvs incantation to get the information I need.

Thanks for your help.
