Yes. Try this:

cvs rtag -D (date) base_(branchname) (module)
cvs rtag -r base_(branchname) -b (branchname) (module)

The first one creates a base tag for the branch (and when the time comes
to merge, you'll bless its existance!).

The second one creates the branch.

Remember all the caveats about dates, like specifying timezone and the
fact that without a time it's based on midnight-that-starts-the-day.
