I'd recommend the Meta-CVS `grab' command.
It's like an `import' but done right: it basically takes an unmanaged
directory, and just creates admin files so that the directory is
now under Meta-CVS control and you can just `mcvs commit' to finish
the import.  This way you get a chance to add/remove the files that
need to be ignored, etc... and it works for any branch.
