The problem isn't the CVSROOT variable, but that you don't have cvs installed.

cvs-switchroot -- change repository or tag in a cvs working copy SYNOPSIS
cvs-switchroot [-T] newroot [file ...] cvs-switchroot [-T] - srcpath [file ...] DESCRIPTION
The cvs-switchroot utility manipulates a CVS working copy directly, modifying the information stored in the administrative subdirectory and saving space by hardlinking if possible. If the -T option is given, the sticky tag is operated on, otherwise, the repository path (CVSROOT). The information (Tag or Root) is set to the same as in srcpath if the first non-option argument newroot is a sole dash ('-'), the literal value newroot otherwise. EXAMPLES
Change all Root information in the current sandbox to /cvs: $ cvs-switchroot /cvs . Set all roots in the current working directory and all its subdirectories to the Root of the parent directory: $ cvs-switchroot - .. . Hardlink the Tag information in the current working directory, for example /usr/src, and /usr/ports with each other: $ cvs-switchroot -T - . . /usr/ports SEE ALSO
cvs(1) HISTORY
cvs-switchroot has existed in the MirBSD source tree since 2005. It was added to Debian's cvs package in 2011. CAVEATS
cvs-switchroot depends on mksh. BSD
June 10, 2011 BSD
