cvs rdiff -s -r tag_on_the_trunk -r tag_on_the_branch modulename

The "-s" makes it print out only the filenames and revision numbers 
instead of the complete diffs.

If you have a tag that marks the origin of your branch, then use that
tag for "tag_on_the_trunk"

(Can't pass up the opportunity to advertise my patch again)
I fyou don't have such a tag, I have a patch that might help:

With CVS built with that patch, you can do:

cvs rdiff -s -r branch_tag.origin -r tag_on_the_branch modulename

(I'm presuming that tag_on_the_branch was created like
cvs rtag -r branch_tag tag_on_the_branch modulename )

Hope it helps.
