Oh, and you don't really want to use anoncvs.

But you should be able to set cvsup to do it no problems.  You may need to
play with your cvsupd config file a bit, but it can handle non-RCS files
just fine... and it even does it reasonably well.  Heck, I should be using
it to pull the anoncvs repository instead of rsync (cvsup has the rsync
alg built in) but I didn't have the choice at the time...
