Get rid of the parentheses.  That should be just:

        DEFAULT   /home/CVSROOT/CVSROOT/checktag.pl

or, to avoid hard-coding the repository location:

        DEFAULT   ${CVSROOT}/CVSROOT/checktag.pl

Note that ${CVSROOT} in this case is a CVS internal variable, not the
environment variable of the same name, which is probably not set for the
server.  See "Expansions in administrative files":
