CVS for DOS?

1. As we all know, it is always recommended to generate a CVS sandbox at
   the system on which the development should occur. That is, if we use
   Windows, use a Windows client, if we use some kind of Unix, use that

2. Furthermore, it is considered "bad practice" to share sandboxes
   between systems.

Now, I have the problem that I need access from a MS-DOS machine to a
remote CVS repository. Anywhere, using google, I did not find any
version of CVS for DOS (nor did I find ssh, which would be needed for
remote access, but this is another story).

Currently, I checkout the sandbox in Windows and move it to DOS via
Windows shares. It works, but it surely violates 1. and 2. Of courses,
Windows line endings and DOS line endings are the same, so 1. might not
be that big a problem, but 2. is one. Furthermore, it is very error

So, I ask you if you know of any DOS version of CVS (binary), or how I
could build that? If anyone knows how to find a working ssh client, this
would help me, too.

BTW: Now, it is no option to not use DOS at all, but to use the DOS box
of Windows, or some emulators on Linux. The compiler environment uses
some custom DOS extender, which is not compatible with all DOS "boxes" I
know of. Running a real DOS on VMWare is an option, and this is in fact
what I am doing.

Any input is highly appreciated,
