Sorry, but how autoconf is relevant to your CVS questions?

If you are indeed going to use separate repositories for A and B, then
you are in trouble. Instead, I'd use the same repository for both A and B,
and then use "modules" CVS feature to reference B from inside A.

If you keep A and B in separate repositories, you will get into kind of
maintenance nightmare indeed, I'm afraid. I mean you'll need to merge
changes back and forth between two repositories periodically, and that's
definitely not fun :(
