Please explain why you need to delete the branch.
Deleting branches is often highly undesirable.

Sounds like your cvs client is too old.

NB: cvs rtag -d -B does NOT delete a branch. It only untags it. This is only
a good idea if no revisions have *ever* been commited on the branch. If any
have, the result of untagging is to leave anonymous branch revisions. By
some definitions, this could be called corruption of the repository.
