Build system with CVS

I need to test several builds with CVS.  Several developers have
programmed new versions of their components, consisting of multiple
source files in multiple directories.

We have a tag "test_tag" that identifies the latest stable version of
all files.  Now, I want to test the new versions, but seperately.  For
this, all developers have tagged all files of their new versions with
the "<developername>_tag".  Obviously, the "<developername>_tag" is on
the same or later revisions than the "test_tag".

I would like to checkout all sources so that the local build directory
1. All files with "<developername>_tag", if available.
2. All files with "test_tag" otherwise

The only way I've found so far is to first cehckout all files with
"test_tag" in the build directory, then checkout all files with
"<developername>_tag" in a different directory and then copy all files
from the "<developername>_tag" directory over the build directory. 
There should be a better way, but how?
