excludes in copies

I've got some directories that I'd like to copy out recursively, but as
we're using RCS to control a lot of these configs, I'd like to exclude
the RCS directory and it's contents from the copy.  

I've got the following line at the moment:

       dest=/usr/local server=$(CFMaster) r=inf exclude=RCS/ exclude=*,v 

and the "exclude=RCS/" doesn't appear to work.  The RCS files themselves
aren't copying because of the "exclude=*,v" but I'd like to not send the
directories out either.

Consulting the documentation hasn't given me any hints as to what I 
might be doing wrong.
