I have the same problem too: $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/cvsignore doesn't work.
Here is my previous posting:

I've been searching through news archive for the answer. It seems to
be the most frequently asked question, with no correct answer yet.

Here is what happened when I tried to "checkout CVSROOT, and 'cvs add'
the cvsignore file":

/export/cvs/CVSROOT# cvs add cvsignore
cvs add: in directory .:
cvs [add aborted]: there is no version here; do 'cvs checkout' first

/export/cvs/CVSROOT# cvs checkout . 
cvs [checkout aborted]: Cannot check out files into the repository

/export/cvs/CVSROOT# cvs checkout cvsignore
cvs [checkout aborted]: Cannot check out files into the repository
