No, log is for use in a working directory; you want rlog.  Most CVS
commands come in pairs -- foo and rfoo.  foo is for use in a working
directory, rfoo is for direct access to the repository.  And you don't
specify the entire path to the repository file, you just specify the
path relative to your $CVSROOT.  You also specify the working file name,
not the RCS file name.  So, assuming your $CVSROOT is correctly set to
/usr/local/cvs, the command you want is:

        cvs rlog project/
