Obviously it's most tasteful to do it in Emacs with M-x grep-find and
keyboard macros or similar.  However this worked for me in the
top-level of the Emacs tree, doubtless not optimally:

  for i in `find . -name Root`; do echo :pserver:address@hidden:/cvs >$i; done
  for i in `find . -name Repository`; do echo $i | sed -e 
's,^\(.*\)/CVS/Repository,emacs/\1,' >$i; done

I can do checkouts, but I see errors like:

  cvs server: cannot read /cvs/emacs/./src/CVS/fileattr: Permission denied
