Two options are, 

i) do a fresh "cvs export" into a new directory each time (takes care
of any issues with deleted files or directories).

ii) use "cvs update" on a checked out directory tree and configure the
webserver, rsync or whatever you use to update the live site to ignore
the CVS directories.
