Timestamps on workfiles

I'm about to switch to CVS from PVCS.

I've been using a flag for PVCS to touch workfiles when I get changed ones from the repository. (For PVCS users, I use "get -u -t *.??v" to get updated files and touch them.) This ensures that my build process will rebuild the binaries that depend on those files. (The latest local binary may have a timestamp later than the last edit shown in the repository, so I want the checkout time, not the time of the edit, on the workfile.)

What happens when I switch to CVS? Is there something similar, or how do others handle this?
