I can think of three command-line CVS clients:

   1. Cygwin (if you can figure out their setup routine so as to exclude
      the unwanted 200MB)
   2. MSYS (under 3MB but can't be mixed with Cygwin, and needs a patch
      to build 1.8 with crypto)
   3. WinCVS also comes with command-line utilities (at least, 1.1 did).
