That's what my suggestion *is* doing.  (Unless I'm very confused.
I admit I've never tried this with CVS, and what ssh hacking I
did was a while ago, so I'm refreshing my rusty memory from the

Note I said "ssh_config" not "ssh*d*_config".  /etc/ssh_config,
like ~/.ssh/config, contains configuration for the ssh client.
You use it to specify, for each server you connect to, any
options specific to that connection.  So you don't do anything
special to CVS, just give it a server host name as usual (in
CVSROOT, global -d option, .../CVS/Root, or whatever).  But,
assuming your server is called, you put something
like this in /etc/ssh_config:
        Port 9999
        [any other options you need]
