Why would you care?
I for one have baselines still checked out from a year or two ago. If you do
a checkout and then repeated updates, the files which were correct out  of
the starting blocks would look like they might have been checked out for the
life of the project.

Or are you one of those who uses file locking/reserved checkouts/watches(to
encourage cvs edit&unedit)? If so why?

With  Concurrent Versions System (CVS) each person on the team can have the
source file checked out at one time and allow all of the team to change it
at one time (or not if they have no need), with the only modulo to that
being unmergeable files (binary or some "beautified").  So I at least have a
hard time seeing why to waste time making such an audit script.

But if you insist, have a look at the response I gave to Cheung Chun Kui
cvs history -o
cvs history -xU
