Off the top of my head, something like:

find -type f -exec sed -i 's/\$OriginalRCSKeyword[^\$]*/$NewRCSKeyword/g' {}

should do it. Check your changes very carefully before committing, though,
in case one of the files is binary, or otherwise happens to have a string
that matches the keyword. You'll also probably want a way to filter out
files in the CVS subdirectories - I haven't figured out how to do that with
'find' yet (if indeed it's possible).
