Unfortunately, the whole world doesn't run Unix...

Unfortunately, OP did not identify his platform, so it seems reasonable to assume (since he's asking on this list) that he's either using UNIX or cygwin (which is the best way to run the version of CVS on windows). Both of those provide a find command that works as described. If you're not running in the cygwin environment on Windows, I'd suggest using cvsnt along with some other way to collect files and execute commands on them. Most of the time, I advise windows users who are not using cygwin to get TortoiseCVS for everyday CVS use:

It's very well documented, beautifully integrates explorer, cvsnt and ssh, and does contain the "add recursively" command you want.

Does *anyone* use the version of cvs on windows OUTSIDE of cygwin as a matter of general practice? (AIUI, both wincvs and tortoisecvs use cvsnt, and eclipse has its own cvs client, so if your cvs use is one of those products the answer is no.) If so, what environment do you use it in?

  C:\foo\bar>find . -exec cvs add {} \;
  'find' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
  operable program or batch file.

What version of Windows is this? The output I get from that command outside of the cygwin environment on a windows 2000 or xp box is:
FIND: Parameter format not correct

At any rate, what benefit does adding files recursively carry over using "cvs import" and ignoring the vendor branch if you don't want to use it?
