Sure you can!  Just "cvs add file" to resurrect it, and then "cvs rm -f
file" to remove it again, and finally (before someone modifies it
elsewhere again :-), "cvs commit file".

You don't want to put a copy in your working directory -- just "cvs add"
to resurrect it and bring it up-to-date.  CVS can't resurrect the file
if some new copy materializes out of nowhere (well, no where it know about).
