I'm trying to automate the process, is there a CVS command that can give me this information or am I going to have to parse the Entries file to determine this?

There are files in the CVS repository that aren't on my filesystem. I think there are two ways that this can happen: 1) I checked out a full set of files from the repository at some point later I deleted some files from my filesystem. 2) After I checkout out a full set of files from the repository, someone else has added new files to the repository.

Is there a mechanism to determine which case applies for each of the missing 

You can look in the CVS/Entries file -- if the file is listed there, it
was checked out and you deleted it.  If it isn't listed there, you never
checked it out.
