I'm not sure what you mean with "recursive add". Possibly, the following
commands might accomplish what you want to do:

$ cvs add `find . -type d`
$ cvs add `find . -type f`

(I expect you are running on a Unix box, or with Cygwin on Windows)

If there are too much files/directories, you might encounter problems
with the maximum line length of the shell interpreter. In this case,
replacing the second command with

$ find . -type f -exec cvs add \{\} \;

is a good replacement, neglecting the fact this this command will be
much slower for a remote repository.
