It depends on which permissions.  If you're talking about read or
execute, you have to go behind CVS's back and chmod the ,v file
in the repo.  Then rm the file from your sandbox and do a "cvs
update".  (CVS copies the sandbox permissions to the repo when
committing a newly added file, but doesn't track permission
changes therafter.)

If it's write permission, you're S.O.L., and will have to use
some mechanism external to CVS to set it properly.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not
necessarily a good idea.
